Publisher's Summary

A. Target market: novices to experts who are or must become employed.

B. My book is unique because it details how to find work and keep it from a librarian's perspective. The book has no tacky guarantees. It covers a variety of employment strategies, including nontraditional solutions. My family background, employment, and experience make me an expert on the book's topic.

C. I am the best person to write this book: My father was a famous New York City Teamster labor leader who passed on many of his organizing stories and tactics, including work-related attempts on his life. I am a native New Yorker, NYC-published college librarian and journalist with two graduate degrees, one in vocational-technical education, the other in library science. I've been published on the Internet and been a computer and fitness columnist in New York State since 1999. I am a New York State certified public librarian with a NYS teaching certification in media communications who created and ran a career-preparation computer lab for at-risk youth through the US Department of Labor. I am also a SUNY communications instructor and a YMCA fitness director. A college librarian and professor in downtown Brooklyn, with a sister location in Manhattan, I have access to over 5,000 students daily. Internet in Bloom, the monthly Internet review column has been published in the Queens Gazette based out of Queens in NYC, both in hard copy and online since 2011. The hard-copy readership alone is 1 million.

D. Additionally I almost died due to a sudden attack of cellulitis in a Yonkers hospital in 2007. If it were not for my employer-provided medical insurance, I could have gone bankrupt. The importance of having health insurance regardless of one's income is the type of point I stress in my book. Finding work and coping with employers is stressful. My book explores work-related stressors. My years as a YMCA fitness director and personal trainer give me insights learned from improving the health of thousands of New Yorkers.
