I wish I'd had this book the minute I was laid off! It was a fast read with an insightful and true look into life before, during and after being laid off. It's positive and uplifting, but not in a cheerleading, make you want to barf kind of way. It's pragmatic and funny at the same time.

Lost your job in the downturn? I did. Feeling droopy and demoralized? Yes, often. This e-book is the antidote -- a quick read, a smart and snappy tone that doesn't bog down, lots of personal anecdotes. The author's many suggestions (some delightfully wacky, others stone-cold sensible) on how to thrive versus survive unemployment helped me alot.

Reviewed by Danita Dyess for Readers' Favorite “FUNemployed: Finding the Upside in the Downturn” by Kerry Quinn proves that there is life after unemployment. She has not only experienced every aspect of unemployment but has mastered the tips, tools and techniques comprising the “FUNemployed” mentality. “FUNemployed” is an attitude that focuses on the good side of the economic downturn. In this 144-page survival guide, Quinn covers every aspect of the subject. She explains why you should avoid department store credit cards, seek the services of the Affordable Unemployment Act (mortgage assistance) and search online to secure the best money-saving deals. She encourages you to do all the things you could not do when you had a job. In other words, reexamine your perception of unemployment and embrace the positive aspects. I thought “FUNemployed: Finding the Upside in the Downturn” would be just another pollyannaish advice book. However, as I turned each page, I was so impressed with Kerry Quinn’s practical advice especially the special sections, e.g., cost savings, cautionary tales, and trends and numerous testimonies from advocates of the “FUNemployment” mindset and lifestyle. Reading her believe-me-I-know anecdotes made me laugh but her pertinent statistics and relevant facts prompted me to reassess my priorities. Quinn is an advertising account director, blogger and the author of “FUNemployed: The Workbook for Surviving and Thriving in Unemployment.” “FUNemployed: Finding the Upside in the Downturn” is highly recommended for anyone in any phase of their career.
