Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Along with jug chablis, pirated cable, and a big spattering pot of lentil soup, The Dog Ate My Resumé is a must have for all under-employed 21-year-olds! (Or 32-year-olds, depending on how much time you wasted while trying to graduate college.) A hilarious and fast read.” —Sandra Tsing Loh, author and NPR commentator

“This is such a useful and hilarious book, it made me want to go back to college again! If only I had a father like Larry Arnstein to pay my tuition.” —Marvin Kitman, media critic, Newsday
