This is a distressing book, made more so by both the cost and the fact that I received on the same day an outstanding (and far less expensive) book on a very similar topic. Except that that book delivered what it promised, and this one definitely does not. <BR/><BR/>There is no author to this book; rather the unknowledgable committee that cobbled it together did so by gleaning a bit here and a bit there from articles and interviews with individual recruiters to simply yield a book to sell. It is a poor one, with little depth or understanding of our industry. <BR/><BR/>Those who wish to gain serious information to enable one to achieve serious production would be far better off buying the 300+ page hardcover book "Search and Placement! A Handbook for Success" by extremely well-qualified industry authorities Larry Nobles and Steven Finkel. More experienced recruiting practitioners might be better served with the 2008 edition of Mr. Finkel's remarkable book "Breakthrough!".. <BR/><BR/>Either way, this book cannot be in any way recommended compared to such genuine books by genuinely knowledgable authors.

The book is well-organized and written logically with good tips, but, it sounds like Courtney Thurman did more research, asking recruiters the 'How they do it?', rather than personal experience from Courtney Thurman. I find very little on the author, that she ever was in the recruiting business. I did find it, worth a read, especially for those like me, new in the business.Was this review helpful?
