Martin Yate
Martin Yate CPC New York Times bestseller Martin Yate is the author of Knock Em Dead The Ultimate Job Search Guide, now going into its 32nd edition. It is the keystone of a 17-book series, with each book addressing a different aspect of job search and modern career management. Collectively published in some 63 foreign language editions, the Knock Em Dead way is unique in its scope and global acceptance in industrialized nations.With new books and editions added constantly over the last thirty-one years, Mr. Yates body of work has gradually evolved into a carefully integrated strategy for navigating the twists and turns of a half-cetury work life.

Born In England, Martin came to America in his early twenties to be a movie star. He failed and went to Silicon Valley instead. The father of two grown sons, he enjoys rock n roll and blues, dancing, kayaking, biking, backgammon, old movies, and collecting art and antiques. He hates gardening but its cheaper than the gym, keeps him in shape and out in the fresh air.

With 17 books and two optical patents to his name and as someone who last danced with a professional ballet company at age 55, he is clearly one of those who has turned ADHD into a superpower. Martin is also a recovering alcoholic of some years standing, and exchanging one obsessive compulsion for another; he particularly enjoys collecting prohibition-era cocktail shakers.
