Diary of a Company Man: Losing a Job, Finding a Life by James S. Kunen

James S. Kunen—author of The Strawberry
an account of the 1968 student
uprising at Columbia University—chronicles
his adventures on the road to finding meaning
in work and life. He traces his evolution from
a rebellious youth who sees working as a kind
of death, to a laid-off corporate executive who
experiences not working as a kind of death,
to a reinvented and reinvigorated individual
who discovers something important and
meaningful to do.
The experience of falling victim to America’s
recession-ravaged economy (and the people
who run it) leads him along a career path far
different from anything he had planned. After
years of making a living, Kunen finally learns
how to make a life. Diary of a Company Man
will be a revelation not only to baby boomers
but to young people trying to figure out what
to do with their lives.
