Review

I accepted the review request for How You Find A Job FAST because I thought that this book would make a good help tool. I wasn’t wrong with that. At 113 pages long (not counting the contents and other promotional pages), this book is packed with advice, practical tips, and helpful examples. It definitely makes a good “how-to” tool for those going for job interviews.

How You Find A Job FAST tells readers how they can make the best impression and pitch to potential employers. Included in the book is a link to a “secret” website where readers can download the L.E.A.P. form to be used when going for job interviews. I like the way the authors gave examples of the various L.E.A.P. forms in used for different careers. I think that this is helpful as there’s nothing better than examples for aid.

I did encounter typos here and there in How You Find A Job FAST. While there were not many of them, some did affect my reading as they made the sentences confusing. The book is one of the most interesting and informative books I’ve ever read. Yet, I strongly wished that there aren’t any typos. Many of them are easy to spot and there would be greater coherency in the book if they weren’t there.

  1. My favorite kind of guide books are those that are concise, yet also provide examples. Sounds like this book has both.

    Typos can be very irritating, I agree with you. Maybe they’ll print a second edition typo free!
