"What I see -- what I've been seeing for years -- is the circle formed by the people in this country who have money and security and status getting steadily smaller. At the center of that circle are the people with inherited money, inherited connections, inherited advantages. Out near the perimeter are people like me, or people like who I used to be, people with good jobs and not much else." One of the greatest books you will ever read, especially if you are between the ages of 18 to 80, and have worked or intend to work in America. Mr. Meyer, although formerly a senior-level executive, candidly and most honestly explains the trials and travails he experiences while seeking work after layoffs in his late 40s and early 50s --- but the situations he experiences are universal in nature and appeal to both women and men at all ages. His work is truly that great, more so applicable today, in the fourth official "jobless recovery" then it was during the first official "jobless recovery" he experiences and writes about. One cannot recommend this book enough; I have re-read it every four to five years and it certainly helps in the "keeping your sanity" department.
