Having been in the same situation of being a middle class unemployeed person I thought that this book would give me some good ideas. It didn't! She just waisted alot of time and money on stuff that I already knew was a waste of money.
I bought ?Bait and Switch? thinking that I was going to get some insight and possibly an idea that I might offer a couple of friends that are out of work. After listening to this, I was more depressed than they are. This book offers nothing to the listener. It is an over detailed account depressively narrated by Anne Twomey of what ?Jane Alexander? experienced going undercover to ?experience the trail and tribulations of middle class unemployment;? something she would never be able experience to as a millionaire writer, in a pretend mood because she?ll never truly ?feel? what the middle class emotional feel. It?s like Martha Stewart going to prison, both ladies knew it is short term and when their term / experience is up they are back enjoying the best the world has to offer. Barbara Ehrenreich I?m sure is back enjoying the rewards of her book sales, maybe she refund my money If she really wanted to help the middle aged, white-collar, unemployed, she should donate some of her proceeds from this book to professional help organizations. Move and buy Keith Harrell?s Attitude is Everything and get inspired.
