I was an unemployed Artist with a GED. The only tools I took to an interview were a photo albumn of Me on the cover% and a silly letter my son had given me of a super woman with a myriad of talents,The owner of the company had all the mannerisms of a boss, the steepled hands for confidence,the leaning forward, all body lanquage that told me everything I needed to know. This book is right on target. I could have gone in wrapped in a sheet. I got the JOB.Now I will finish reading the book to complete the JOB. Thanks Pati Tilemuralist from Central Florida
