It's good for anyone who has phone fear.
Critics have called it a shallow pep-talk by an unqualified author but I think it's the best self-help book you're ever going to read.
So who's wrong, them or me?
Here's my pitch
My idea is that job hunters have to be sales people but that most of them have absolutely no aptitude for the role.
They are obliged to market themselves to employers but sales is not something that they would do if they didn't have to.
This means that they are not going to do it or that they are not going to do it well.
This conflict between ability and necessity provides the logic for a book that tells people who are not psychologically suited for sales how to change their thinking so that they can become sales people.
So, this Is a guide for anyone who feels nervous about cold-calling busy strangers.
I contend that these people have two weaknesses:
1. A childish fear of punishment that doesn't really exist.
2. Guilt that tells them they have to surrender to punishment by the angry strangers they think they are going to disturb.

Tell me what's wrong
I can't really say that I love punishment but I do want to know where I went wrong. So write a short review that tells me where you think I've done so. If you send it to me, I'll publish it here. If you feel shy, read the first round of reviews. You'll see that anything goes.
The Critics Roared
"Animal doesn't have the professional credibility to write a book about psychology."
"its strengths are overwhelmed by the chosen plot device and the loose editing."
“Job-Hunting for Pussies”, is what Animal clearly wanted to call this book.. Even at the low, low price of zero dollars for the Kindle edition, this vanity publication is somewhat overpriced."
"When Recruiting Animal sent me his latest ebook, I was expecting to read the same direct, down-to-earth job search advice that I see from him on social media. I imagined job search strategies delivered “Anthony Bourdain-style”. That’s not this book"
