I try to follow all of his books- Admittedly, I have not seen the new anticipated book, but I expect it will be just as informative. I own two private schools in South Florida and require my students seeking work to read his books. I refer to readers of his books as, "Soon-to-be- Employed!" In today's frenzied economy, I am eager to see the adjustments he has made to prepare the job seekers for this current environment.
