    Thank you J. Robert Moon for the first book I have found that truly addresses what happens during unemployment. The book is Unemployment and How to Live Through It and it just does that—how to live through unemployment. This book is not another how-to-book about resumes, cover letters and interviews. Rather it tells you the effect unemployment has on many aspects of your life and those around you and how it is a life changing event filled with ups and downs, false hope, and how to deal with each facet.
    The book explains why being laid off isn’t personal; it’s about the bottom line and how to navigate unemployment benefits. It continues with demystifying the feelings associated with an unplanned separation from your company. The feelings are described and are typical, but J. Robert Moon also explains how to deal with the feelings, unlike many other books. This section alone is invaluable to anyone unemployed. The emotions need to be acknowledged and dealt with in order for the person to be able to move forward with a successful job search. While these feelings are normal, they can become out of control and the author tells what to look for, what you can do on your own, and when to seek professional help.
    Finances are often a serious problem and J. Robert Moon provides ideas on dealing with the financial issues and provides ideas on different ways to supplement unemployment benefits along with the effects the extra income has on your benefits. The solution to the financial situation is employment and the author suggests different employment options both traditional and nontraditional. He also provides an overview of the job search process. The impact stories from survivors of unemployment are inspirational. The stories provide the encouragement needed by many laid off people to continue with their job search.
    This book is a must read by two types of people. The first is the people who have just experienced an unplanned job loss. It is a manual on unemployment providing the reader with information on what to expect and what can be done. The second is the people in companies that are planning to lay people off. They need to understand that 1) they are laying off real people, not faceless numbers; and 2) these people have human emotions and needs. While layoffs may be necessary in companies, the powers that be will know what outplacements services they should offer to their displaced workers.
    I highly recommend this book. It validates the feelings and needs of the unemployed and provides information and support during this highly stressful experience. Thank you J. Robert Moon for taking your personal experiences and those of the many you know to provide a once source book for all the various issues of a lay off. Your compassion shows on every page of the book.
