Apparently, it works. He tackled cancer in his earlier book, A ‘Cute’ Leukemia, and now Rodney turns the full force of his relentlessly wacky vision on the challenges millions face in unemployment.
He tells this true story through words and images—as well as audio and video you’ll enjoy through easy links in these pages. Here’s an example: As the story opens in Chapter 1, “I knew things weren’t good at my company when they closed down half the bathrooms in our building. The economy was going down the toilet, but we sure weren’t.”
Then, as fear battles hope in the opening pages, a link offers Rodney’s recommended soundtrack for that chapter: a song from a popular movie that’s just a web link away and, soon, your toes will be tapping as you read. You’ll get hooked on the multi-media counterpoints and, when you’re done, you’ll be asking yourself: Why doesn’t every book have a soundtrack and movie clips?In the end, you’ll be glad that nothing stops Rodney Curtis—and that you can join him in this adventure. His high spirits are strong enough to lift yours, too.
Rodney Curtis is also known as The Spiritual Wanderer, the title of his first book and a phrase that explains his approach to life. He’s an ordinary person, yet he finds inspiration—and often a refreshing laugh—in unlikely places. Then, like millions of us, Rodney was hit with tragic news: a layoff notice and a diagnosis of cancer. Most of us don’t face these fears as a double whammy. Thank God, Rodney’s life is a relentless search for hope and humor. Throughout his career, Rodney has been a media innovator. He has worked in newsrooms nationwide, primarily as a photographer and photo editor. He also teaches other aspiring journalists in settings ranging from individual coaching to university classrooms. In his earlier book, A “Cute” Leukemia, Rodney turned his wit on his successful battle with cancer. In this new book, Rodney summons all of his media talents to bring hope in the face of the other widespread fear: job loss.
