This book is aimed at the professional or technical person. This will not be helpful for the unskilled or blue collar worker. However, there are tips found in several sections of the book that are interesting and useful for everyone. As an unemployment consultant for those who are primarily not college educated nor professionals, I did not find this to be the best resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT FOR THE NEWBIES or EXPERTS OUT THERE! June 8 2003
This book was a great investment! The cover letters give you examples to use in your own letter and show you the strengths found in each cover. I actually took a highlighter to this book and highlighted my favorite lines and ideas out of certain letters. I then implemented them into my letter. Great for everyone, the professional or the inexperienced. YOU NEED THIS BOOK!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Ideas ! Thanks Amazon! Feb. 17 2002
By A Customer
I found this book to be very helpful, most of its kind. There are over 20 chapters of different kinds of letters, and the samples given by the authors/contributors offer a lot of variety. These are very professional and action-oriented letters. I highly recommend it in differentiating oneself in a tough job market.
