Interviewing: Speaking, Listening, and Learning for Professional Life is an introduction to the theory and practice of interviewing, a topic of high interest to students as they prepare for a work life outside of college. What sets the book apart is its careful introduction of skills common tosuccessful practitioners, followed by the various contexts in which interviewing occurs. The focus is on three main skills in Part One, leading with listening, turning to questioning, and followed by their unique treatment of framing. The contexts of interviewing are thoroughly explored in Part Two, with an exceptionally strong chapter on employment interviewing. Part Three placesinterviewing in a wider context, with distinctive chapters on popular culture and professional interviewing. Relentlessly student-oriented, pedagogically rich, and with well-integrated coverage of the ethical and cultural dimensions of interviewing, Anderson's Interviewing is an ideal introductionto this increasingly popular topic.
