Ask the Right Questions, Hire the Best People – Free eBook Download

Ask the Right Questions, Hire the Best People

This book is exactly what it says it is: A list of questions designed to make your interviews with prospective job candidates more effective in weeding out the pretenders and uncovering that dream hire. There’s not a lot of strategic content here, but this book is rich in tactical detail. For example, most of author Ron Fry’s theoretical advice amounts to two points: probe for specifics and keep the applicant talking. The repetition of this self-evident advice is the book’s biggest flaw. But in the end, such shortcomings are irrelevant, because the book’s real value is in its list of interview questions, with accompanying comments on what answers you should be looking for. It seems impossible that you could read this book and not stumble over one question that makes you smile and tuck it away to spring later on some unsuspecting interviewee. getAbstract recommends this book to human resource professionals or any manager charged with hiring. If nothing else, it will add an arrow or two to your quiver.

Ask the Right Question! – Free eBook Download

Ask the Right Question!

Author Rupert Eales-White emphasizes the importance of using active listening, focusing on a particular subject, and asking good open-ended questions to get productive results from interviews and conversations. He mixes a few examples with specific how-to principles outlining ways to structure effective conversations. This generally solid book has the feel of a textbook. Some readers may find it too structured or basic, since the author breaks down conversations into sentences with some detail. The book’s approach may be more appropriate in organizational cultures where people prefer a focused style of questioning. Those who prefer a more informal, casual conversational style may find his approach less suitable. getAbstract recommends this book to human resource professionals, to those facing critical interviews, and to those who wish to think strategically about their conversational, information-gathering, or persuasive skills.

Tailgating, Sacks, and Salary Caps – Free eBook Download

Tailgating, Sacks, and Salary Caps

Baseball may be the Great American Pastime, but professional football is Americas passion. With revenues in the billions of dollars, massive TV audiences thirsting for its product and merchandise flying off the shelves in thousands of stores, the National Football League is a textbook example of how to build and maintain a thriving pro sports league. While professional baseball, basketball and hockey have all experienced labor strife and endured difficult financial times, the NFL has largely avoided such crippling problems. Thats mainly because of its salary cap and a revenue-sharing system that benefits teams in smaller media markets as well as teams in major metropolitan cities. In the NFL, owners and players consider themselves partners in an enormously successful enterprise, rather than operating as greedy adversaries trying to squeeze every penny from each other. Like any other multi-million dollar corporation, the NFL succeeds because of smart management and foresight. getAbstract believes that both the casual fan and the rabid NFL loyalist will appreciate author Mark Yosts expert examination of the leagues economic infrastructure and behind-the-scenes politics. Highly recommended.

The Inspirational Leader – Free eBook Download

The Inspirational Leader

Leadership guru John Adair talked with a bright young executive about leaders and the tenets of leadership, and recorded the conversations in this unique, philosophical book. Adair addresses tough questions about leadership and drills down beyond management and deep into human nature. He doesnt bother with leadership buzzwords, but instead discusses in meaningful terms the qualities that make a leader effective. People arent born leaders, Adair says, they are made. Although the book is a bit too philosophical at times, the authors instructions to the young executive (which make up the text of the book) are thought-provoking, and the quotes peppered throughout the book are memorable. If you aspire to transform your management abilities into true leadership skills, getAbstract encourages you to sit down with the professor and his young protégé and enjoy the conversation.

Inside the Yield Book – Free eBook Download

Inside the Yield Book

Sidney Homer and Martin L. Leibowitz, the authors of this slim volume, accomplish a tough feat. They utter a piece of rudimentary financial advice in one sentence and then launch into mind-bending explanations of the calculus that makes the rudiments true. Maybe that’s why their 1972 classic has been in print for three decades. This updated version of the classic includes new forewords and some material that was cut from the original. Unless you’re an experienced bond trader or a finance whiz, this primer isn’t exactly easy reading. The authors waste little time on hand-holding. Still, it remains a complete look at its topic after all these years. getAbstract.com suggests this book to investors and traders who need a crash course – or a refresher course – in bond analysis.
