'An entertaining book we can all enjoy... highly informative and amusing.' Daily Mail

Every year, millions of applications stream to a handful of companies that regularly top the listings of best employers: Apple, Netflix, Amazon, Alphabet, Disney, SpaceX, Oracle, PricewaterhouseCoopers and others.

In 2017, Tesla received as many as 200 applications for each vacancy, making it ten times more selective than Harvard. The only way to choose who to hire is with uniquely demanding questions that test imagination, persistence and creativity. Questions like:

How is a milk carton like a plane seat?

Why don't animals have wheels?

What would happen if you drilled a hole all the way through the Earth and jumped in it?

How Do You Fight a Horse-Sized Duck? explores the new world of interviewing at A-list employers. It reveals more than 70 outrageously perplexing riddles and puzzles and supplies both answers and general strategy for creative problem-solving.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'An entertaining book we can all enjoy... highly informative and amusing.'

-- Daily Mail

'Thought-provoking... Clearly, Poundstone isn't talking about fighting ducks at all, although you'll have plenty of fun deconstructing the analogy with logical analysis.'
