This is another of the books that I’ve picked up so that I can read them and then write spark notes style summaries of them for a client. As far as those books go, this has been one of the better ones, in part because of the way that the authors broke it down. The subtitle of the book is “10 rules for mastering disruption in recruiting and engaging employees”, and that’s exactly what this book will offer you.
The fact that it was broken up into these ten sections made it much easier for me to both take in the information and to refer back to it later, and while that’s not necessarily a marker of quality, it is a good sign. Honestly, I can’t really apply any of the lessons here myself because I’m self-employed, but I did think there were some pretty good ideas, and it was all backed up with data, too.
Of course, it was still a little dry, but I read a chapter or two at a time and that worked out pretty well for me. I also imagine you’d get a lot out of this if there’s an audio book version, although I haven’t checked. All in all, I was pleasantly surprised because I went in with fairly low expectations, and it turned out to be pretty good for what it was. I’m not sure who I’d recommend it to, though.
