Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This collection of job search tips by Mackay (Swim with the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive) follows the style of his previous best sellers, complete with humorous examples and "Quickie" one-page stories that illustrate his main points. Don't let the cover or any worry about his sense of humor dissuade you: this is a very useful book. The short chapters with descriptive titles make it easy to navigate, and Mackay offers tips—from changing your attitude to getting hired—both for those currently employed but wishing to position themselves better in their current companies and for those who are out of work. Highly recommended for job seekers and career changers at all experience levels.—EN

    By far, THE best!!

    I've read numerous job search books, some that are very well-known. They're not bad, just NOT as fabulous as this Harvey Mackay one. His style of writing, his information, thoughts, and ideas are more refreshing AND motivating than other job hunt books. At this time, I'm looking for a job while temping. I've already been enlisting some of Harvey's tips, including tweaking what I have done in the past. He is frank, honest, and tells you what you NEED to hear, and doesn't just pat you on the shoulder. All the while, he gives much hope and encouragement. Bravo, Mr. Mackay!! Ten stars-worthy.
