    I enjoyed this book as a detailed overview of many human resource functions I found the templates to be helpful Now that I am done reading it has found a place on my desk and will be useful as reference when creating forms I also will use it when creating presentations and trainings for staff For example I liked the chapter on interviewing and appropriate and inappropriate interview uestions The advice is practical and relatively up to date It is a newer edition of the book but sometimes it did come across a little dated Technology is evolving uicklyI think it would be particularly interesting for people outside of HR to read As an HR professional I still found it interesting and informative though I recently took the SHRM exam and I thought it covered similar material to the examI would recommend this book to anyone interested in HR someone who wants a concise but comprehensive guide to HR and someone taking on new HR projects like writing an employee handbook who would like a place to start The book would also be helpful for someone running a small business who does not have traditional HR support It was a good read to start the year and review the essentials of HR
