Review by: Tommy S. W. Wong on July 03, 2012 :
Unemployment, undoubtedly, is a stressful experience and it is more than financial. David candidly shared his cycles of employment and unemployment experiences in which he discovered that there were certain benefits being unemployed. He also shared his insights of the corporate world, which is extremely useful to youngsters who are starting out in their careers. He also shared how some people look at unemployed, and gave tips on job hunting. All these are extremely useful to the unemployed, who naturally need a lot of support and this book is one of them. I congratulate David on sharing his personal, real-life experiences in this book.
