Format: Paperback
This is a stunningly written book about a topic that is not so pleasent but unfortunately becmoing more common. The book opens with a riviting story about how he got fired. This story is really nicely written and will grip your attention. The author is a newpaper reporter and you can see those writing skills come out. Then he moves the story to his trip home to tell his wife. This was also gripping. LaVeist is a really talented story teller. I won't ruin the rest of the book for you, but I will say this. Fired Up was very inspirational and uplifing. The writter is coming from a Christian perspective and uses Biblical principles to come back from a devistating experience. It gives practical advice and if you are dealing with job loss or any other type of adversity this is a book that can help you through.

I have been on the "getting fired" side and the "doing the firing" side of business. Neither are pretty. This book helped me view both situations with a new set of eyes-- more human and thoughtful eyes. The book was so good, I read it twice! Mr. LaVeist takes you on his "getting fired" journey by including his spiritual insights and life experiences to ultimately end up personally and professionally successful and healed from the stresses of unemployment. I found this to be very helpful and thought provoking book. I strongly recommend FIRED UP to anyone who has been or thinks they are about to be fired.

In these tough economic times, many people are losing their jobs... or worried that they might. In his new book Fired Up, Wil LaVeist encourages us to have no fear!

Fired Up is a self-help book that reads like a novel- or two. In it, LaVeist tells us his story of being fired from a company that prides itself on being a quality, family-run and family values company, and how he overcame not only the financial crisis that ensued but also the feelings of betrayal. In telling us his story, LaVeist also recounts of the story of the biblical Joseph, who experienced a similar firing from- and at the hands of- his own brothers, and how God lifted him to greatness.

In this book, LaVeist brilliantly reminds us that what man may mean as evil against us, "God meant it for good," and he gives readers real, practical advice on how to survive and thrive after being terminated. It's a true must-read for employees and employers alike.

Wil Laveist writes with honesty and candor about the devastation of being fired from a position for no other reason than office politics. He writes with such conviction about his journey through unemployment, the support of his wife, Rita and the emotional struggles of being the head of household, yet out of work. Wil does a wonderful job of placing his experience in a spiritual context. A really good read for anyone who is blindsided on the job -- and equally good for anyone who has the unpleasant task of firing an employee. Compassion, in this case, goes a long way. Wonderful book and highly recommended!
