    1. This book has some valuable information and ideas about how to improve your odds of hiring keepers, but it is also painful to read First the painful part The book shamelessly plugs its own brand and company and this borders on nauseating at times The methodology explained in the book is labeled Topgrading and if had a dollar for every time this term was mentioned in the book, I could retire His success is self evident because of the adoption his processes, at companies such as GE, however the au [...]

    2. Didn t find this book as ground breaking as other readers Yes, the main concept was interesting, but it seemed like a one long promo for his childrens consulting busineses.

    3. Topgrading is a hiring process that is supposed to increase the percentage of A Players from 25% to 90% in your company The principle are that you keep job candidates honest through thorough reference checks on their background, extremely clear KPIs for roles and other principles, and you either weed out or convert B and C players into A players A lot is focused around principles for large companies, which have actual HR departments and than 1 person in a role so that position descriptions perf [...]

    4. This book was good, as was the concept behind it, and the data that supports it However, I think that the book was a bit long for what it was trying to prove, and they should have perhaps just stuck with teaching businesses how to conduct meaningful interviews and how to identify good employees and separating them from the bad Besides the length and a little bit of fluff in the book, I gave it 5 stars because anyone that has ever given an interview, or anyone who has ever had to write questions [...]

    5. There are some good nuggets of best practices scattered throughout the book but the author s amount of self promotion makes them easy to overlook My CEO asked me to lead a book club at my company to discuss this book and senior leaders were so focused on the amount of times Smart used the word Topgrading that many were not able to focus on the value of best practices such as interview standardization, using reference checking as a legitimate tool and doubling up for team interviews Additionally, [...]

    7. This book was on the shelf in my old boss s office, so I borrowed it just to see what she was reading Thirteen years later the lessons in the the book have stuck with me Most of the book is about why the hiring decision is so important, and why it s important to retain top talent The reason I still have it on my shelf though, is the great section on how to properly conduct an interview See p 226 A short version of the CIDS interview I highly recommend it for anyone making a hiring decision.

    8. A must read for anyone hiring anyone It is hard to think of an organization in any field that cannot benefit from this book After working in the hi tech start up industry for 10 years Silicon Valley International I agree with about 99% of this book.Many just cannot get the people thing right.

    9. May have had some good points I don t know, because I didn t make it past the 2nd cd It seemed like a giant advertisement for his company.

    10. Book was good but not groundbreaking The concept is sound but maybe should ve been shorter in length and explained in simpler manner.

    11. The book has great ideas but 90% of the pages are wasted trying to convince the reader to follow the program Should be 100 pages.

    12. Read this for work very interesting concept for upping the talent at an organization Principles can be applied, but really needs to come from the leadership down in order to be effective.

    13. Thorough if perhaps overly long Its prescription for extended interviews helped us steer clear of some potential hires Would that I had read it sooner
