Show of hands please. How many of us know someone who has been impacted (nice way to say lost their job) by the recent economic downturn (nice way to say crash)? Well, as long as they are past the suicidal depression stage, you should really give them a copy of “Wrongsized Become chronically unemployed in 26 easy steps”. It may not help them get a new job, but they will certainly glean some interesting pointers on what NOT to do and probably pee their pants laughing at the same time.
Larry Solomon has written comedy pieces for some pretty famous shows (Laugh-In, The Smothers Brothers, The Dean Martin Show) and his ‘unique’ look at different jobs available these days is sure to tickle anybody’s funny bone. The laughs start at the introduction and don’t stop until the last page. From the ‘stages’ of job loss to hilarious stints as Postal Worker, Limousine Driver, Fortune Teller, Undertaker, and many more, Solomon has the knowledge and the willingness to say it exactly like it is.
As someone who lived through ‘downsizing’, Solomon invites readers on a merry tale (he even admits where the truth stops) of an out-of-work executive looking for a new job. The chapters are short, sweet, and well-written as well as snortingly funny. So for those tired of the gloom and doom of current news, pick up a copy for a lighter look at the ups and downs of employment in today’s America.
