    I would say this book is quite good, but not damn good. It’s fine if want to write a resume for a ‘normal’ type of career, but if you have a technical or non-office type of background, it’s a bit lacking. For those types of jobs, you sometimes NEED a job description or list of duties in your resume for employers to know exactly what it is you do- -highly discouraged here. I strongly recommend Rosenberg and Hizer’s ‘The Resume Handbook’ over this book. It has everything that’s in ‘The Damn Good Resume Guide’ and a bit more, including a list of resume don’ts and examples of bad resumes.

  2. Having been involved in the preparation of resumes extensively over the last 15 years as a state and federal employment counselor, I have never found any author who more willingly and professionally explians the resume process. Yana is definitely more concerned over quality than just making a buck! “The Damn Good Resume Guide” and its sister titles are definitely head, shoulders, knees and toes over any other book dealing with resume and job search preparation. A “GOTTA HAVE THIS!!” for anyone who wants a truley Damn Good Resume.

    This book has ten steps to writing a good resume. For those of you who might think that this is too many, everything is so concisely written that it is easy to get through the book in a day and end up with a great resume. Other books on resumes that I have read fill up their pages with fluff or well-duh information, not so this book. Although some may complain about the seemingly lack of variety in the jobs showcased (I tend to disagree), the ten steps themselves may be applied to a resume for any job. The only drawback to the sample resumes in this book that I can see is that they are a bit wordy (which contrasts with the rest of the book). However, you can aways trim the fat in your own resume.

    I recommend this book to everyone, but especially to people that want a consise explanation of how to write a resume, and/or someone that needs to produce a resume in a short amount of time.

    Over the years, Yana Parker’s books have provided me with valuable insight to the importance of a well thought out, well-targeted résumé. Even as a Certified Professional Résumé Writer, I often refer back to Yana’s books to help me see the résumé writing process from a job seeker’s perspective. This has proven especially useful in conducting effective interviews with my clients. I have greatly benefited from all of Yana’s books that include, but are not limited to, Résumé Pro: The Professional’s Guide and, more recently, The Damn Good Résumé Guide: A Crash Course in Résumé Writing. In the latter, she again goes far beyond the basics of résumé writing. Page by page, she counsels on a broad scope of issues and encourages job seekers to practice self/job assessment exercises before making unsuitable and time-wasting career decisions; even if it means — yes, doing homework first!. As the First Lady of the résumé industry, her staying power speaks for itself. I highly recommend The Damn Good Résumé Guide: A Crash Course in Résumé Writing for anyone seriously considering writing their own résumé.
