Imagine in the middle of a job interview being asked the following question: “You are shrunk to the height of a nickel and thrown into a blender. Your mass is reduced, so your density is the same as usual. The blades start moving in 60 seconds. What do you do?” For some years now, corporations like Google, Microsoft and even Walmart have begun to ask applicants tough thought problems and odd problems meant to showcase how the applicant creatively solves problems. How hard are these questions? Tune in tonight when we talk with author William Poundstone about his new informative and fun book: Are You Smart Enough To Work At Google? Trick Questions, Zen-Like Riddle, Insanely Difficult Puzzles and Other Devious Interviewing Techniques You Need To Know To Get A Job Anywhere In The New Economy.

Auden Distinguished University Professor of the History and Theory of Sexuality at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His new book How To Be Gay began as a controversial course he offered years ago that posed these questions and many more.
