Item Description...
No fight left? No future? Does the handwriting on the wall say utter failure?

Harvey Mackay, one of the world's best-selling motivational and business authors tells you why it isn't so. He reveals anecdotes and secrets from some of the best and brightest headliners in our world today. Their gripping accounts show that no one is immune to bad judgment or backstabbing. In colorful detail, these remarkable success stories reveal what the best of the best did to get back on top.

Each story tells a unique tale and contains valuable lessons that are applicable to any reader who wants his or her career to flourish; indeed, this is the book that will inspire, instill hope . . . and give more than a glimpse into what makes these stalwarts strong.

When Fortune magazine called Mackay "Mister Make-Things-Happen," it was right on the money--getting this amazing group of people from various walks of life to talk openly about their abilities to bounce back shows him to be a master at getting people to divulge some of their defeats and their dreams.

Hopeful, tough-minded, and filled with indispensable advice, We Got Fired! . . . And It's the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Us will show anyone how to turn a modern bummer into a major blessing. It's a rarity: a sure thing in our shaky times.

Getting Fired Is Not So Bad  May 14, 2007
Harvey Mackay, known to many as "Mr. Networker" has interviewed some of the top people in the business, sports and entertainment worlds and found out that they all have something HUGE in common on their path to success....they were all fired at some point along the way.

The thought of being fired frightens most people. Regardless of the reason, the uncertain feeling of what you would do next can be overwhelming. But these leaders, including: Bill Belichick, Mark Victor Hansen, Lou Holtz, Joe Torre, Lee Iacocca, Larry King, and others, were all canned at some point.

There stories make the rest of us have hope. It is a reminder that the best times are still to come, no matter what the problem.

Mackay is one of my favorite writers, and he does not let us down in this book.
Ordinary  Feb 1, 2007
This book was purchased as the result of an over-hyped online promotion and it was a big disappointment. You can easily spend your money better.
Difficult Transitions Are Key to Personal Success  Aug 14, 2006
Life is filled with unexpected twists and turns both good and bad. Years later, when we have the benefit of hindsight, key setbacks can oftentimes be seen in a more positive light. Being fired or in a difficult career situation are two such setbacks. In "We Got Fired?," Harvey Mackay highlights recognizable people who suffered such a setbacks, overcame them, and moved on to great personal success. Each featured person views their setback as a critical to their ultimate success.

Mackay includes the stories of Lou Holtz (former Head Coach, University of Notre Dame), Bernie Marcus (founder of Home Depot), Bill Belichick (Head Coach, Pittsburgh Steelers), Bernadine Healy, MD (former President, US Red Cross), Larry King (CNN), Billie Jean King (Tennis Star), Michael Bloomberg (Mayor, NYC), and Robert Redford (Sundance Festival), among many others.

A "Mackay Moral" is included with each person's story. Examples include; when you spend time controlling other people's expectations than fulfilling your own, it may be time to move on; be prepared - you never know if you're the next to go; and, when you are pinned to the mat, the only place to look is up.

"We got fired!" will be appreciated by those who are in a difficult job situation or are in-transition (got fired or laid off) Mackay wrote this for all walks of life as a source of hope and motivation.

We have many choices when a setback seemingly strikes us down, to become bitter or to become better. Mackay in "Fired" provides hope and shows the way to becoming better. It is up to us.
Good Read - Worked Great for my report  Jul 25, 2006
Used the book as a reference in a Master's Term Paper. Enjoyed the book and it was thought provoking - - - :)
Oh, how the mighty have fallen!  Oct 7, 2005
What you get out of this book will depend on your purpose for reading it. For example, do you want to feel better about having been fired? Do you want to see how other people handled tough situations, or are you expecting practical advice? If you want to be inspired and get over negative feelings about having been fired, then you might get something from this book. It is great to see the people in this book triumph over bad firings. However, being that most of them are major players in business, sports, and politics, the average reader might not find much information to be personally relevent. How many of us are CEOs of Fortune 500 Companies? After reading the first few stories, I ended up skipping around to people and situations that I found the most interesting. However, the type of people profiled doesn't have to limit what you learn from the book. If you want practical advice, the author does summarize what he thinks we should learn from each person's situation. It is just that the advice is presented in a style akin to your uncle telling you stories about what he learned when he was fired twenty years ago. I prefer the analysis done by those profiled and what I got out of it on my own.

This book is unique in the very fact that it is subjective. I don't know of any other books on being fired that give such indepth examples. For that reason the book seems to be more a collection of biographies than an advice book. From that perspective I found the book to be worthwhile to read. I enjoyed learning about these people; some of whom I had heard of, and some I hadn't.

If you are seeking advice, then the author's central message can be summed up as follows: there are other opportunities out there, you just have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and pursue them.
