Laid off? Let go? Down-sized? Right-sized? Made redundant? Author Rick Dapp relates his personal experiences dealing with unemployment at an inopportune time -- near the end of his career. Dapp does this with modesty and good humor, enlightening us all along the way about what is most important in life.
From the Author:
It was an experience with my dad that provided the title for this book. Once, when I was hopelessly lost in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan, (a city of seemingly all one-way streets) I called him from a pay phone and expressed my frustration at ever finding my way out of my predicament. His reply was, "Keep turning right, you'll get there eventually." Those words stayed with me and, despite a variety of wrong turns in life, I always fell back upon the simple logic of his statement.
The book is not intended as a solution to the problem of unemployment, as many "how-to" books profess, but is, rather, a "how-not-to" volume from someone who has lived the experience.
