Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 rob | 12/16/2013

    " I was most interested in this book from the side of the people doing the firing, looking at what worked, what didn't, the perception of various phrases. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Louie | 12/14/2013

    " A lot of the stories are pretty funny. Light reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Needleroozer | 12/5/2013

    " I started reading this book one day at work when the computers were down and I didn't have anything to do, but couldn't leave. It is amusing. It is amusing to read stories of rich and famous people (mostly) in the entertainment industry getting fired. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Neisys | 11/27/2013

    " It's very entertaining. A good afternoon read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 11/22/2013

    " While this group of essays was amusing, it was not as funny as I had hoped it would be when I picked it up. I have noted a number of things in my life being less enjoyable due to my high expectations lately (movies, novels, etc.) and it is something I am working on for my own personal growth. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathleen | 11/13/2013

    " This was amusing. About 80% of the essay were about people in the entertainment industry. It would have been much more interesting to have read about corporate America!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 6/3/2013

    " Hilarious! Especially if you have even been fired from a job yourself. Some celebrities even share their embarrassing stories of getting fired from Hollywood and Non-Hollywood jobs. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stacey | 4/16/2013

    " I actually don't know why I picked up this one. But it's an amusing collection of stories of fired celebrities. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ray | 1/9/2013

    " The book contains several humorous anecdotes about individuals getting fired. It's a nice easy read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 3/21/2011

    " It's amusing, and it made me feel a lot better about my own sudden shift in career plans. It's not life-changing, literary masterpiece that makes you reconsider everything you thought you knew, but it was enjoyable and comforting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Billy Ward | 10/22/2010

    " After being let go from my job, it was nice to read how other people had it worse. Schadenfreude is bad, but at times like that, it was so good! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandy | 1/17/2010

    " Light, usually funny. Mostly TV/movie celebrities, with a couple of relative nobodies thrown into the mix. I'd imagine that it's a much funnier book if you've been recently shitcanned, but without that context? Funny enough, but with little lasting memory. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 1/8/2010

    " There is a sly message. All of these folks got fired, but there is almost always a happy ending: success. The sin is not getting fired; it's to stop trying or to lose your sense of humor. In fact if you haven't been fired, you apparently aren't trying hard enough. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Natalie | 7/18/2007

    " Too boring to continue reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Recynd | 12/18/2006

    " You know, whatever. Some of the essays were a hoot; others...not so much. A bathroom read. "
