William Poundstone

Rated 0

Prose: non-fiction, Business ethics & social responsibility

* How the world's smartest companies select the most creative thinkers

Microsoft's interview process is a notoriously gruelling sequence of brain-busting questions that separate the most creative thinkers from the merely brilliant. So effective is their technique that other leading corporations - from the high-tech industry to consulting and financial services - are modelling their own hiring practices on Bill Gates' unique approach. HOW WOULD YOU MOVE MOUNT FUJI reveals for the first time more than 35 of Microsoft's puzzles and riddles, such as:

* Why does a mirror reverse right and left but not up and down

* If you could eliminate one U.S. state, which would it be

* How many piano tuners are there in the world

And for the first time, this book supplies answers and approaches using creative analytical thinking that works. Anyone in business, and everyone who wants to be, will find this book a valuable new approach to hiring, identifying talent in an organization, and getting the job of a lifetime.
