Temp-Tation: An Introduction to Busyness Management

Overview

What is the first thing that comes into your mind after you fall on the ice in a parking lot and skin your knee? If you're like most folks, you think dark thoughts or worse about the no-good so-and-so who owns the lot and didn't scrape it down to the bare pavement. Or you get upset about the clothes you've just ruined.

Overview

What is the first thing that comes into your mind after you fall on the ice in a parking lot and skin your knee? If you're like most folks, you think dark thoughts or worse about the no-good so-and-so who owns the lot and didn't scrape it down to the bare pavement. Or you get upset about the clothes you've just ruined. But if you are Carol Feltman and you had finally gotten your courage up to re-enter the workforce after a seventeen-year hiatus raising your children, you take yourself and your torn clothes home and tell yourself that (someday) you'll write a book about it. And so she did.

Carol Feltman is a veteran "temp." For over twenty years, she's worked for almost every temporary employment agency that ever serviced the Massachesetts towns of Bedford, Burlington, or Lexington -- her self-enforced "driving range" -- and wrote it all down, each night. All the funny things that happened "on assignment" and lots that didn't seem so funny until some time had passed. The result is her book, TEMP-tation, subtitled, "A Guide to Busyness Management."

TEMP-tation is a very informative, very entertaining book about being a temp. If you are thinking about temping, you'll find lots of how-to help. If you are a temp, you'll find yourself saying, "Yes! That's just like the time I was at...," laughing along with Carol and seeing yourself in the delightful drawings by Mark Steele which uncannily capture the essence and humor of Carol's experiences. And if you are neither, you will find reading TEMP-tation to be just a nice way to spend some time with a warm, witty, and totally upbeat woman who did us the favor of writing a book about it.
