Interesting but it's a little bit like just another snowball in an avalanche. Plus, as you know, by the time it goes into its first printing, something will change that will make some of it either bad advice or simply obsolete.

The "skipsmanship" chapter is laughable for 99.999% of consumers and the law of unintended consequences would curse the average person who tried some of those things - they'd never be able to get a job with any company who does simple background checks.
