When I went to a bookstore to peruse the Job Search/Resume Writing Section, I was appalled at the vast number of books, most over 200 pages, detailing the "correct" way to write a resume. My first reaction to these so-called experts was, "How pompous!" I have been an executive recruiter ("headhunter") for over two decades. However, I do not claim to have the formula for the perfect resume that will land you an ideal job. After reading tens of thousands of them though, I know what does not work. That is why I put pen to paper. My approach is simple. This is not brain surgery, so there is no need to make it complicated. If you know what to stay away from, you are more than halfway there. I have accomplished this by providing the reader with humorous commentary on resumes that would cause potential employers to cringe. Most of these examples are extreme, but drive the point home. Also, along the way, parameters are included to give job seekers a framework for their finished product. This book shows that one can have fun with the resume writing process without it having to be excessively long, dry and uncompromising.

This radical reconstruction starts by observing that Josephus's sources on the early history of Israel do not agree with the Bible and that the oldest rabbinic traditions show no sign of a biblical foundation but only of secondary offshoots from the Bible. Another interesting question is raised by the Samaritan claim, at the time of the persecutions under Antiochus Epiphanes, that they had only recently received the Sabbath from the Jews. From such details, Nodet builds up a comprehensive line of argument that reveals two major sources of Judaism, as symbolized in the subtitle of his work: Joshua was the one who established locally in writing a statute and a law at the Shechem assembly, while the Mishnah was the ultimate metamorphosis of traditions brought from Babylon and mixed in with Judaean influences.
