Book Reviewed: "Using several of the techniques mentioned in this book I just landed a nice job. Here is what happened... I recently went in for an interview for a job where I had NO direct experience, just similar or distantly related experience. The interview was a smashing success, and I was called back for the second interview with the company CEO. I ended up with the job! Imagine that, I got the job over about 20 other people that had years of experience in the field. How did this happen, you ask? Simple, I went in as myself and played up my strong points, and showed a desire to learn the areas I may be weak in... simply put, I was myself through the whole process, and they felt that I "fit" with what the company was all about." ~ reviewed by Patrick M.

Radically Real: The
Quest for Authenticity
genre: Fantasy Romance
Although Thalassa, a sea-witch, is captured when the warlord Rhaeven sends his troops to her small village, she views it as not much more than what her past life entailed. Married at a young age to a man she did not love, and abused during the relationship, she is secretly glad to see her husband die. Now, pregnant, enslaved, and stricken with a deadly disease, she only waits her own death to release her from her torment.
Terran, the elfin Crown Prince of Diraenia, must choose a mate and produce an heir before his 30th birthday, or forfeit the crown to his youngest brother, Unwin. And time is running out. Terran is 29. His fiancÚ, Elise, is dead, and he believes Unwin responsible. Yet, there is no proof. To make matters worse, Terran's other brother, Sinclair, has disappeared, and Terran fears the worse.
Bothered by a strange, haunting beat of drums, which no one can hear save himself, Terran's thoughts continually turn to a brief encounter with a young woman from Zal. Three days he spent with her, walking her back to her village, and her pre-ordained life there. Three days he spent falling in love with a woman who could never be his. She returned to her village, her waiting husband, and he returned to the palace, and life of emptiness and despair.
But the drums continue to call, and at last, Terran sets out to revisit the village, to see the woman one more time, to bring a close to his questions.
