I own 3 other books on resume-writing that got good reviews on Amazon.com, but they never got me an interview. "Amazing Resumes", however, made resume-writing really simple, and even enjoyable. The authors, Bright & Earl, don't assume you have 30 years of experience or a college degree, even if you do. It's designed for anybody to use, even a 16-year old looking for his or her first part-time after-school job. They help you play up what you have under your belt, and tailor each resume to each job you're applying for. It's an awesome book. And there's not a lot to read, either. The authors get straight to the point. I got 3 interviews just last week by using this book as my guide. I hope this review puts "Amazing Resumes" on Amazon's radar.

This is a rather rudimentary book, presented in a "Resumés for Dummies" -type format. I have no problem with the format; it works well when we are just learning a new skill. But this book is full of exercises to help you read job ads, and to discover "who you are" in the workplace. For example, page 35 asks "Who Are You?" Fair enough. But then, the title on page 47 asks "What Kind of Person Are You?" On page 74 (out of 223) we are finding out how to put our name atop the resumé, just the way that we want it (don't use "James Edward Harold Bright" if you like to be called "James Bright") This follows at least a dozen exercises, just to get you that far. I am an experienced manager, looking for a production management position in a local firm. I aim to polish my resume to a spiff shine by drawing elements from top-notch examples. Amazing Resumés is not a powerful reference source for someone like me. However, this book is not completely devoid of relevant information: I will use some of the chapter on language (though the whole chapter is less than 4 pages long!), and I will draw what I can from the limited number of resumé examples which are included.

I love this book! It got me thinking about my resume again in ways I never had before. The information is very current and fun to read. There are several detailed, step-by-step instructions that are quite easy to adapt and plenty of examples. Several before-and-after critiques as well. Both my girlfriend and I have used this book with a lot of success. Definitely worth a purchase!

Im Sorry Jim Bright, but your resume book wont help get someone hired. I have been using Jim's advice since 2003.
Whilst the book will help you make a resume with your achievements listed.
IT WONT HELP YOU MAKE A SALES DOCUMENT.

Jim does explain what layouts things employers prefer to see, but this can also help them move you to the reject pile more quickly.

I Cant recommend this book at all. I would recommend instead you google how to write a resume and keep in mind it is a sale document. Im sorry Jim Bright but your Resume books suck! I want to be compensated for using your s***ty advice!
