"This is excellent information! It's easy-to-read and easy-to-use. You will get terrific insights that make your interviews not only easier, but successful!"
-David Swanson
Writer and Consultant, Author of "The Resume Solution"

"In these times of increasing complexity and competition, Brian Mclvor leads you to a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the interview within the organisational context. Refreshing in its simplicity this is an excellent resource for all involved in the interview process."
-Patricia Brand

"This book is a must-read for those of us who dread facing the job interview. How many of us have really spent considerable time preparing for a job interview. Yet  Interview- Wise? argues cogently that this is just a starter if this is a critical job opportunity for us. As we read on we more fully understand the total and two-sided dynamic of the interview."
-John Higgins
Chief Executive, Retirement Planning Council of Ireland

"I really enjoyed reading this. Practical, inspiring and engaging. A new perspective on the tactics and skills needed to master the interview. It is almost like a hand coming across the table to help you do a better interview and to engage in a positive conversation with the interviewer. If you read this book and act on its suggestions I believe you will increase your chances of success three-fold - if not more. A must-read, practical and pithy guide."
-Dr. Peter Hawkins
Founder of the Windmills Career Project, Liverpool University

"A clear, practical and enjoyable guide - not just for managers but for anybody who needs to perform well at interviews."
-Mary Rose Greville
Professor, School of Business, Trinity College, Dublin
