This book is so topical and would only be helpful for those going through a job transition. The author did keep the subject light and the book is easy to read. I was happy that it gave a new perspective on losing a job; it gave a feeling of hope.

I appreciated the stories giving ideas of what can be done after losing a job. There were several suggestions and stories and each certainly made me think. He helped to eliminate the feeling of impending doom. The idea of getting new training or freelanc

Thank You for Firing Me! has much of the same career advice you can find in any other career advice book. Personal success stories are a typical way that these types of books can make themselves stand out from one another. Although the personal stories in this book were great, there just weren't enough to make the book outstanding in that sense.

I loved this book and couldn't put it down.

This was a quick read. It did spark a few ideas for me to investigate though. I do question some if the research/editing. Pretty sure personal computers went on sale to the public prior to 1995 (pg74), and I know for a fact that Canada doesn't offer free child care and college eduction (pg178) so I wonder about some of the other facts in the book. Overall though it was an entertaining read and I did come out of it with some positive ideas.

This book had some really good advice and good "soul searching" exercises. I guess time will tell if it was actually helpful!
