The Ultimate Unemployment Reading List

It's no secret that the economy, despite some recent gains, is in a pretty bad place. With almost 9% of Americans out of work, including many new college grads, unemployment isn't rare; unfortunately, it's becoming harder and harder to find work as the recession drags on. Yet there is hope for those who are out of work, especially those willing to learn new skills, polish their resumes, and get back into the workforce. While it's not easy, many people are finding work. Though it may come with a smaller paycheck, a career change, or after months of concentrated searching, work in any form is something to be grateful for in an economic downturn.

If you're unemployed, you likely have a bit of free time on your hands that can be used to do some reading that can help to get you back on track with your career or even find a new one altogether. Here, we've collected some books that are sure to inspire, educate, and motivate you as you manage the good, the bad, and the ugly of unemployment.
