Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Psychiatrist Gordon and business writer Harold have written a humane book for people who have been downsized or feel the threat of downsizing. Downsizing, they note, is a result of a changing global economy and is not the fault of either employee or company. The authors encourage those who have lost a job or fear losing one to take positive steps to control their destiny, and their book includes inspiring narratives of real employees who have done so. Speaking to employees' psychological needs, the authors help put priorities in perspective and open up new possibilities for growth. Accordingly, employees can not only endure but conserve their dignity and continue a rewarding home life while becoming their own guiding force in a better career. Managers, human resources departments, and workers can all benefit from this book. For all libraries.Peggy D. Odom, Texas Lib. Assn., Waco
