ABOUT THE AUTHOR
The short answer is that, nowadays, you have to make it yourself. This is the book that tells you how.
This book is the "Plan B" guidebook for executives, managers, and any employee who can be fired at a moment's notice by an employer with the potential to be completely unfair, unreasonable, and inconsiderate!
It is required reading for anyone who can be down-sized, right-sized, re-organized, re-invented, re-engineered or outsourced without warning by bosses who are not thinking of you.
