Hiring for Attitude (McGraw-Hill/Available now) is a book intended for recruiters, but in its pages author Mark Murphy reveals the game within the game that applicants need to understand to make the best possible impression in an interview. Managers often seek subtle but telling uses of language to detect trouble signs; certain answers to questions may be seen as demonstrating lack of ability to handle change, challenges, team chemistry or corporate culture.

Murphy is founder and CEO of Leadership IQ, a training and management consulting firm. For more about the book, click here.
