Take a look for yourself: www.yourefiredbooks.com">http://www.yourefiredbooks.com
The site offers a Spa package for the first one hundred buyers and each month a new offer will be posted to all customers. The purpose of this book is to awaken the spirit and recharge the batteries of the entreprenuer inside all of us. This book gives a new forcus on being fired.
Each person deals with such things in unique ways. Tristan Becker has shown us just how unique she has dealt with hearing the works "You're Fired!" And the stories in this bright and spunky book show us how others have dealt with those words in their unique ways.
You can purchase this book through the site and tell your own story if you have one to share. There are more people being fired these days, that the topic has long passed being taboo.
I found the author has a twist of humour that is obvious through out the book which makes the reader feel at ease and allows for a much better reading experience.
But like I said before; don't take my word for it.
Visit and enjoy.

The Hogwarts universe is set to expand by an additional two new Harry Potter books, published by Bloomsbury in the UK (and presumably Scholastic in the USA) in conjunction with a British Library event, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the series.
The library exhibition titled, "A History of Magic," featuring the two books will be open from October 2017 to February 2018.
The books, both by the British Library, include unseen sketches and manuscript pages from author J.K. Rowling, magical illustrations from Jim Kay and artifacts from the archives at the library.
J.K. Rowling, in a statement on the Pottermore website, called A History of Magic an "adult edition" and Harry Potter A Journey Through A History of Magic "a family edition for younger readers."
As a part of the celebration of its centennial this year, the Women's National Book Association has awarded the WNBA Second Century Prize to the Little Free Library. The award, which carries a $5,000 grant, honors "an organization that supports the power of reading, past, present, and into the future,"
The Little Free Library, a nonprofit organization that promotes reading for all ages, but especially children, by building free book exchanges.
Founded in 2009 in Hudson, Wis., by Todd Bol to honor his mother, a schoolteacher, the Little Free Library promotes the building of free book exchanges. There are now more than 50,000 registered Little Free Libraries worldwide, in all 50 states and 70 countries.
The budget battle is kicking up again in Washington, but this time with a note of optimism for libraries and library supporters. Last week, a House Appropriations subcommittee voted to recommend level funding for libraries in FY2018, which would mean roughly $231 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), $183 million for the Library Services and Technology Act, and $27 million for the Innovative Approaches to Literacy (IAL) program.
The vote comes after President Trump in May doubled down on his call to eliminate IMLS and virtually all federal funding for libraries, as well as a host of other vital agencies.
By his own admission, the novelist Junot Díaz is an agonizingly slow writer and a chronic procrastinator. Over the past two-plus decades, he has published just three books: two short-story collections and his 2007 novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, which won the Pulitzer Prize.
But even by Mr. Díaz's glacial standards, his latest book, Islandborn (March 2018, Dial Books), will be long overdue about 20 years past deadline. And it's a mere 48 pages long.
According to the New York Times, Islandborn "engages with many of the same themes that Mr. Díaz has wrestled with in his fiction: immigration and identity, the weight of collective memory, and feelings of displacement and belonging." ...
