For many job hunters, Random House's Perfect handbook series provided that essential nudge in the right direction. Moreover their slim, concise, well-designed format made them easy to use and very portable. This new compilation of Max Eggert's classic works, The Perfect CV, The Perfect Interview and The Perfect Career faithfully reproduces the original texts and as the front cover claims is "everything you need to get ahead in one simple package"--and possibly more. The new large-format book looks nice on a shelf but is rather unwieldy to handle and the easy-to-use design of the classic Perfect series seems to have been lost along the way. While the chapters are extremely short--most are one to two pages in length--the reader still has to wade through a lot of unnecessary information to get to the most useful points.

In our highly competitive world first impressions are important and yet The Perfect CV only has a few pages on design and layout. Chapter 36, "What to Leave Out", includes some useful pointers but arguably the most beneficial material in CVs--the examples of covering letters and different CV structures--is included, seemingly as an afterthought, in the appendices. The Perfect Interview does include some rather handy tips. Part 4--"The 100 Most Popular Questions Asked by Interviewers" is a useful prompt, especially to the uninitiated interviewee. The checklists, again included in the appendices, could prove essential in those last moments of pre-interview panic. The self evaluation tests in The Perfect Career are revealing but not for the faint-hearted. All in all, The Best Job-Hunt Book in the World is a very useful reference source. But it's arguable whether the guide could have benefited from condensing the best original source information into one easy-to-use handbook.--Aruna Vasudevan
