This is a fine piece of short writing that captures the shift in mood and chaos of a sudden layoff. It focuses in on the subjective experience and is chillingly familiar to the reader, regardless of their own personal experiences.

As a person who has lived through several such days in my working life in Corporate America, this book captivated my attention from word one. It reads like a thriller (at least to me), the tension is high-octane throughout the short amount of hours we spend inside Rick (the protagonist's) head as he tries to discover upon whose heads the proverbial axe will fall (and will his be one of them?) Great read. Highly recommended.
