Reviews for - Starting Over: 25 Rules When You've Bottomed Out
"Too often, it's difficult to relate to writers that seem to have it all together. Ms. Gannon struggled
through a difficult divorce and financial setback (living off welfare, etc.) along with 4 children, to
emerge as a success. It was difficult to put this book down. I found myself doing the simple
exercises that helped me find out more of what makes me tick with joy.
"Ms. Gannon's book is insightful and personal. Rather than giving a littany of suggestions
(although she does have great insight and advice), she gives her own story of things that
actually worked for her to give her a true career.
"An important point of her book is that we as a person must change before we can grow into
something better in our careers. She conveys excellent points to help do just that.
"I feel like her advice came more from a mentor than an author. Terrific work, Ms. Gannon!"

"Unemployment can be a tough condition to get out of. "Starting Over: 25 Rules When You've
Bottomed Out" is a guide for getting that fresh start so many want when faced with recent job
loss. With much advice on completely rebooting one's career, making those new connections,
filling out that resume, and getting the job you truly want, Mary Lee Gannon does not fail in
arming readers the best she can."
Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)
Ms Gannon's book is full of solid practical how-to survival skills for job seekers, employees, and
entreprenuers. Some specific examples that I liked are establishing SMART goals for whatever
it is you wish to accomplish - get a job, change careers, move up the ladder. Another great
example is the 30 second elevator speech introducing what you can do in the workplace. Other
tidbits of good advice include dressing for the part, interview skills, writing a dynamite resume
that showcases your skills for the potential job at hand, and achieving life-work balance. Ms
Gannon peppers her book with many illustrative anecdotes from her amazing personal life and
those of her family and friends. The book is especially useful to younger people in there 20's
and 30's who want to get there career path off to a great start. It is an easy read and can be read
in any particular order. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found it very worthwhile.
