This book was really encouraging and easy to read - would recommend for needing to look for a job after school, college, uni or after having a break from work.

A really great read. Easy to follow with clearly laid out chapters. Helped me get to grips with where and how to start applying for the job I really wanted, and then great tips for interviews as well. Would definitely recommend, not only for those who aren't in employment, but also if you're looking to change career.
