Note the publication date. Yes, it was still on the shelf of a medium public library as of this writing. As many of you know, old career and job information just chaps my MLIS.

The author has a book sprinkled with personal accounts, some career¬†advice and even marriage advice (cuz the little woman at home woman at home won’t understand). The best story from this chapter comes from a guy that hid the firing from his wife and banked his severance until he had another job. God forbid, ¬†if his wife found out and he was regulated to chores and childcare. Notice “tell your family” is not the first item on the list.
