    Nothing Really New but Well Presented and Thorough Layoffs are up. The employment market is tight. What do we need? Another book on how to handle a midlife transition after some form of job loss, of course! While it would be easy to just write this book off as pretty obviously timed to take advantage of a growing market (ironically one of the few right now), the fact is, Martha Finney has some food for thought interspersed between the standard fare that you would expect from a book of this nature Nothing Really New but Well Presented and Thorough Layoffs are up. The employment market is tight. What do we need? Another book on how to handle a midlife transition after some form of job loss, of course! While it would be easy to just write this book off as pretty obviously timed to take advantage of a growing market (ironically one of the few right now), the fact is, Martha Finney has some food for thought interspersed between the standard fare that you would expect from a book of this nature (don't go postal in your dismissal meeting .... sage advice.) Finney, comes over however as a credible voice and the book is well written in short, pithy and to the point chapters that will make it easy for a reader to go through both as a straight read or as selected portions for pep-talks and preparation for the needed tasks to move through this sort of transition. Finney's background as a journalist and consultant in HR matters put her in good stead and make her a credible voice. Yes, a lot of what she has to say is common sense, but then some of it may just save you some important leverage should you face the situations she describes such as a settlement package being presented to you in the exit interview where you are asked to sign your rights away (hint: don't do it!) If you have an inkling you might be taking the long walk down that cold and dreary hall, do yourself a favor and pick this book up to prepare for it before you need to. 4 Stars. Bart Breen

    A must read for anyone going through a precarious employment situation, or really anyone who works at all. Rebound is an important book which teaches a lot of lessons about the job market and what to do once your job is swiped out from under you. Let's face it, it's something which is happening to a lot of companies and people in this economy, which is all the more reason to remain educated and motivated to continue seeking reliable and meaningful employment opportunities. While Martha Finney do A must read for anyone going through a precarious employment situation, or really anyone who works at all. Rebound is an important book which teaches a lot of lessons about the job market and what to do once your job is swiped out from under you. Let's face it, it's something which is happening to a lot of companies and people in this economy, which is all the more reason to remain educated and motivated to continue seeking reliable and meaningful employment opportunities. While Martha Finney doesn't really introduce any ground-breaking new concepts, the very simple step-by-step method by which she explains the process of going from laid off to re-employed is funny, enjoyable, and relatable even to those people that may not have taken a course on the subject or been in a business which keeps you prepared for these sorts of upsets. It is important to remain motivated after suffering such a life-changing, possibly catastrophic event as losing a job. This book does a great job of re-invigorating and re-motivating once something like that happens. I enjoyed it immensely, and it certainly helped me to get back into the swing of things and back on my feet after losing a job.

    I really enjoyed this book. It pretty well nailed how I'm feeling about being laid off and while a lot of it is common sense, it's nice to have you feelings, thought and ideas validated. It was an easy read and at the end of the chapters there were nice concrete ideas of what to do and not do. I would recommend this book. In fact I'm buying a copy for a friend.

    Nothing new from other books upon the same subject, being laid off from your job and how to deal. Standard advice that seems to pertain only to some people, not to others. It does read quickly, laid out nicely in short chapters and easy reference. A very revelant topic in today's work world.

    What I can remember from this book is reading it when I took my husband in to his many doctor appointments after he broke his hip the day after I got my pink slip. It was good to read this book. It's too much of a blur to know if it helped but eventually I did find work.
