The best part of this book is the philosophy, as exemplified by the title. Instead of a touchy-feely book about coping with job loss, it takes a matter-of-fact approach to the subject: you were fired, just like lots of people; it seems like a big deal to you, but it's not really a big deal, so get over it, start looking for a new job, and get back to work.

This author knows her stuff. She tells of her own struggles and explains how to pick up the pieces after losing a job. In detail she goes through how to write a great resume and gives a list of essential key words that help your resume stand out. She also shows you how to write a nice cover letter. This book goes in depth on how to find work. There is a list of resources that is especially helpful. It's a great book for those that are out of work and need help getting back to work.

This book is awesome, she covered all of the bases concerning job searching. Having recently been laid off, I needed a catch all in a book. The book offered sound advice about job hunting, volunteer ring, Cobra. You name it, it is in the book. If you are currently seeking employment, give this book a try, you will not b dissappointed.

This book is a lot of common sense, but it's one of those things where you need someone to say it for you to get it. I read this at a time when I had just lost my job and had lost all hope and confidence. I would recommend it for nothing else then an empowerment tool that reminds you that you are in control of what happens next.

I enjoyed this book for the most part. As someone who recently quit his job to go back to school it has helped in my search for a new job that will work with my school schedule. This book has a lot of great advice. I wrote a review for it on my my blog @

Unfortunately had to read this book but it was very good. It covered all the exact emotions involved with job loss. Also gave good tips and a bit of inspiration.
Wonderful book to help you find your own destiny
