...before hiring someone there should of course be a need to do so,
does your book cover this grey area of deciding whether to hire or
Does the book go further than the interview and describe the part
of the process that follows it?
I'm not sure what grey area you are referring to, but my book does give some advice about the decision to hire. One grey area that can be a challenge is deciding what to do about those candidates that are borderline qualified. In other words, all candidates fall into three categories: "obvious yes", "obvious no", and "damn it, I have to think about this one!" I have several suggestions regarding these folks. When you flip a coin, it's rare the coin comes to rest on its edge. The better you get at interviewing, the more you can shrink the grey area. So you can attack this problem in two ways: improve your hiring (I use 'hiring' in a broad sense here), and have strategies for resolving the borderline cases.
I go into reference checks, contacting the candidate, offers, and negotiation as major topics. I touch on a few other things as subtext. Is this what you mean?
