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.
