He presents thoughtful and often times humorous antidotes that keep you engage. This book has been invaluable during my job search. **Bonus - Tip of The Day** Recently a friend introduced me to Yate's LinkedIn Group - Knock em Dead Secrets and Strategies - check it out. Good discussions by many and often times Yate offers webinars. 'Pass it forward!'
