Great read, Harvey, this is one of the greatest of all time, I enjoyed reading his personal stories and interviews,his book is a solid advice for the human resources professionals too. An advice that Harvey give would be using http://www.Hounddotcom . The site has jobs only from employer websites and far more jobs than you will find on other job boards.

WOW! In this market, a money back guarantee on finding a job. I didn't have anything to lose by buying this book. So I bought it and I found a treasure trove of good ideas, tips and secrets to help me find a job. I'm still working on finding a job. In just a few days, my resume has never been better, my attitude about my job search has improved and I feel like I can network even better and more strategic. Harvey Mackay has given me bonus items too that help me use the internet to find jobs, research before interviews and generally get my act together with my job search. There is a reason he's a #1 New York Times Best Selling author of Swim With The Sharks, this book is destined to change the nature of job and CAREER search for the rest of my life. Thanks for writing this and giving me the boost I needed this winter.

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.

I really enjoyed reading the book. I am fan of Harvey Mackay's books. I found that the textbook can be really useful also for human resources professionals.The information provided is really valuable. Also the way the book is structured (small chapters)give the opportunity to the reader to also organize the information provided in his mind.I would definitely recommend this book (as all Harvey Mackay's books) to all. I gained a lot of knowledge reading it. I would recommend to read for a second and third time. I would also recomend (personally it helped a lot) Hound to look for jobs. I really liked using it because it has jobs only from employer websites and far more jobs than you will find on other job boards. So Harvey Mackay you did it again! Great job.

This book is loaded with data for any job seeker. It teaches people to realize they must always be job seekers watching out for their professional life. The data can be applied to any sector of the economy. Being unemployed, downsized, right-sized, etc., is not a failure, it is a fact of life. Harvey Mackay's book guides the reader to understand this fact of life does not indicate they are a failure. The work world has changed and each person must change with it. Through the use of personal stories and interviews with people, Harvey Mackay's book provides solid advice for the reader. The chapters are very short -- only a few pages -- which allows the reader to have bite sized portions of information. This book should not only be read but it should be "used". "Used" means to make notes in the margins, use a highlighter, fold down corners of a page, add Post - It notes, and similar ways of tracking info you can turn back to later. Consider this to be not just a book. It is a Work Book! Thanks to Harvey Mackay for sharing all this information!

I had trouble rating this book and here's why: 1. The entire book is filled with great info. As with other Harvey Mackay books, it's terrific street/office-smarts, well written, and easy to apply. If you've never read Mackay's work, you will gain huge amounts of valuable insight. 2. The vast majority of this book has been written before - by Mackay. If you're a fan and "student" of Mackay (I have been for a long time), you've either heard him discuss some of the content in interviews or have read most of this in his columns, submitted articles in other publications or websites, and/or other books. I've created my own Harvey Mackay notebook. I already had most of this text. 3. A good aspect of the book is that it touches on career stages other than the job hunt, namely advice on how to help keep your old job and how to advance your career. This is great, but it may catch an impatient reader off guard if they think this book will start with and focus on job hunting. And there you have the dilemma as to how to rate this. Great stuff. If you haven't followed this business genius, you will gain a lot of knowledge and how to apply it. Most of what he lays out can be well used in marketing and sales also (thus, you have part of the "reprinted" work), not just job hunting. But... If you have followed him, you've read the majority of this before.

Admittedly, I was a Harvey Mackay fan when I went to the Minneapolis Barnes & Noble to buy this book. I have read all of the items in the Mackay oeuvre - which is considerable - and have been known to press the bounds of polite conversation in urging others to read one or another of Harvey's titles. The books and cassettes are transformational. A short forty word summary of Harvey Mackay's catalogue of books, articles, tapes, videos and "tweets" can be found in the epilogue of his latest book. In classic Mackay style, refurbishing a famous quote from Andrew Carnegie, Harvey declares: "You could take my money from me, my home from me, my factories . whatever . but leave my good name, my reputation, and my network.. And I will be back where I was in two years." The Mackay genre is a set of road maps for building one's good name, reputation and professional network. It is jammed with strategies, every day tactics and healthy food for thought - all delivered in a home-spun style that is accessible to just about every reader. These road maps will lead you to unimagined heights in good times and help you to chart a swift return when - as happens to every one of us, sooner or later - disaster strikes. Ever au courant, Mackay's newest title is a field manual for Americans who are suffering in this era of economic calamity and collapse. It has valuable suggestions and take-aways for those who have a job, and for those who don't. As Mackay explains in the opening pages of what turns out to be an unbelievably useful volume, this is the book that his wife of nearly fifty years, Carol Ann, urged him to write. No doubt a lot of lives will be changed for the better because of that prompting. This book is worth buying for yourself, for a loved who is looking for work or anyone who relies on a paycheck.

I have been reading Harvey Mackay's books for the past 22 years and they keep on making my life and my career better. I started out with Swim With The Sharks to learn how to survive and thrive in the business world. At times when I was looking for a job, his networking book Dig Your Well Before Your Thirsty showed me how to make relationships with heart. Now, this new book is great for people that are looking for a job or know that they want to keep improving at their career. You can't get better without a coach or someone to share their secrets and tips from their experience. Harvey shares all his job secrets and all the tools that he uses to be successful. Plus, he guarantees that if you buy this book and don't find a job he'll refund your money. It's filled with good ideas and GREAT cartoons.
