The book is similar to other Gayle Mcdowel's books when it comes to getting ready to apply to top tech companies but with more emphasis on building a great resume.

I was glad reading this book and taking effective cues and applying it to my cv.

Is it true? If you need a quick source for refreshing your job-placing experience i would totally recommend this book to you.

I got an interview followed by two other interviews by Google while reading this book after spending 48 hours fixing my resume.

It helped me perfect the process without any awkward moments. Did I get the job? Even though I did not get the job it was the most intense and amazing experience I have ever had. This book will help you get the phone screening at least, but you won't get the job.

Only 1 in people get an offer. If you want to better your chances you better read a Data Structures and Algorithm books. I suggest you read these two read them in order!

Nothing wrong with that, or with a book having a specific audience. Where I had more of an issue was with wh As a year-old employed software engineer, I picked this up more out of idle curiosity than for any truly compelling reason, like an imminent job search. Where I had more of an issue was with what I perceived to be the emphasis on using technical software skills to enter a company, with the idea that any sensible person would be moving into management as soon as possible.

Probably within years of hiring, but only a loser would not be a project or program manager or a VP within five years. As someone who is perfectly content to finish out my career as an individual contributor, I found the implicit message to be grating.

Sep 10, Craig Motlin rated it really liked it. I was intrigued to read a book by an author who was in my college classes. The advice in the book was useful and pragmatic. I think the most useful advice was about how to quantify your accomplishments in your resume, making it more concrete and memorable.

Two things hold me back from giving the book 5 stars. A decent amount of the advice is common sense. The book focuses disproportionately on recent graduates and internships probably drawing from the author's own experience.
