I was disappointed in this book. Sandra Susan Smith understandably sympathizes with the unemployed, but her refusal to hold them accountable when necessary is disturbing. For instance, Smith talks about one unemployed woman who complains about having to pay for gas for her job search, despite having the option to have the gas paid for if she simply recorded her mileage. I expected Smith to take a harsh view of such entitlement, but instead, Smith defends the woman's position, even citing it as an example of how the system fails job seekers. Most people - whether unemployed or not - would be thrilled to have their gas paid for just for recording their mileage, yet Smith apparently thinks this is too much to ask, which makes her book hard to swallow.
