As someone who lived through getting laid off and then struggling for two years with being unemployed, I found myself looking forward to reading "Slow Love: How I Lost my Job, Put on my Pajamas, and Found Happiness" by Dominique Browning.
Thank God I didn't pick this book up WHILE I was unemployed. It annoyed me now, I think back then, while I was in the throws of unemployment, I quite possibly would have been livid.
The majority of the population, when hit with unemployment, don't have the luxuries that this woman had: she was financially secure, she had a second home to sell to help with the loss of her income. Most of us have two weeks worth of savings and then we're sunk. She wasn't a particularly likable person. She carried on an affair for years with a married man. That is a big "ICK" in my book.
There were times, particularly in the beginning of the book when I thought that I was totally going to relate to her story, but as time went on, it just bugged me because even in this down time of the author's life, I don't think she had a clue what living in the "real" world mean.
You can decide for yourself if this book is for you by reading other reviews at BlogHer . Personally, I will find my happiness elsewhere.
