"""Description:This book should have been entitled ""How To Destroy The Lives And Families of Loyal Employees In One Easy Lesson."" Seems to me the knee-jerk reaction of most companies is to immediately fire personnel when the business experiences a hiccup or a better dollar amount could be had by a merger. Don't judge a book by its cover? It would be criminal not to! How many execs are willing to tighten their personal belts or trade in that thick juicy steak dinner for a can of pork and beans? While most who have read this 'book' may not agree with my opinion, we can agree that most of you reading this post may have been laid off recently or are about get the pink slip. Mortgage payments are missed, cash reserves run dry, past due bills are stacking up, fear and worry consume your thoughts daily. I think a better idea would be to write a book about how companies can create business through innovation and a strong detail to professional integrity, keeping the best personnel, value their humanity instead of measuring them as a liability on the balance sheet. While reality is reality, layoffs should be the very last resort and consideration should be given to those who have made that company great in the past."""
