As someone who entered the job market at the absolute nadir of the economic collapse, I am all too familiar with the situation described in this book. Therefore it was both reassuring (I'm not alone) and sobering (nothing's changing any time soon).

The bulk of the book concerns both common questions posed by companies (not just Google) and their "answers." Commentary on the current job market and anecdotes are interspersed.

An interesting read. I know I'll be thinking of it next time I sit on an appointing committee or apply for a job.
