Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The master salesman and best-selling author ( Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive , LJ 4/15/88, and Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt , LJ 1/90) is back with a blend of anecdotes and maxims designed to perk up anybody's job search. Mackay is an excellent storyteller and good writer--even when the advice is fairly predictable (i.e., know what you're good at and nurture your business con-tacts). The overall effect is stimulating. Colorful vignettes and a sprinkling of unorthodox suggestions, such as having your mother write a letter of reference, make this book as entertaining as his other two hits. The emphasis on self-promotion may strike some as self-centered. Yet it is the type of strategy Mackay has used throughout his career and is likely to make this book one patrons will ask for. Recommended for general business collections.-- M. Uri Toch, P.L. of Cincinnati and Hamilton Cty.
David Rouse
Mackay may have run out of catchy titles, but he hasn't run out of advice. His first book, "Swim with the Sharks without Being Eaten Alive" (1988), now ranks as one of the top-selling business books in publishing history. His follow-up, "Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt" (1990), was also a best-seller. Mackay is a salesman, not an author. His books are merchandise to be hyped and promoted, and they come filled with celebrity endorsements. He has used focus groups to fine-tune his titles. He pulls in $25,000 for an appearance on the motivational lecture circuit, and he has logged hundreds of speeches. Because he is so good at all this, and his sound-bite observations and homespun tips often make sense, people want more. While his first two books were devoted to finding success on the job, this latest one emphasizes how to find and keep a job in 73 succinct, snappy chapters. Mackay is certain to go three for three.
