“Thank you so much for writing this book!  My career experience includes approximately twenty years as a hiring manager, and everything in your book is spot on.  Now that the paradigm has shifted and I am the one looking for a job, it’shard to see clearly what needs to be done… so your step-by-step guide to the ‘stealth approach’is a lifesaver.  I have moved emotionally from despair to enthusiasm, and now it’stime to follow up with some action!  So, quick success story:  I have posted business ads on Craigslist many, many times to acquire consulting work and NEVER got a single response—like the post was never seen by anybody.  After reading your book, just for the heck of it, I posted an ad using some of your principles, and I got a hit: a real live potential client!  A friend had just directed me to “What Color is Your Parachute?”and I need to go to the library and pick that up—but I read your book first, and I am glad I did!”
