Life on the Dole: The Partial Autobiography of a Successful Scrounger

by Filius Thoreau

Filius Thoreau, arch-benefit fraudster and jaunty raconteur, celebrates the silver anniversary of his induction into the world of the workshy with his candid, but not too candid, autobiography in which he celebrates the unique and sinuous path he has steered through the minefield of work-obsessed modern Britain.

From the dark days of the Poll Tax through the laissez-faire nineties to the ghastly government work schemes of the new millennium, Filius has marched onwards to the sound of his own personal drummer and constructed a uniquely apologist philosophy along the way.

Northern Dole - One Man's Story

by Jack Hessell

Northern Dole is the candid account of an unemployed man in his sixtieth year reflecting on his life to date and the situation in which he unexpectedly finds himself. Jack Hessell is not an accomplished writer, as he would be the first to admit, but by laying down of his thoughts and reflections during the most trying period of his life he hopes to permit others to analyse, understand, and perhaps learn from his mistakes; or to reassure themselves that such tribulations have not happened and could not happen to them.

This revealing memoir is a wistful, rambling but ultimately enlightening and uplifting narrative which will be chiefly of interest to those of us who seek to attain more insight into the experiences of those members of our society who go largely unheard.

A Little Off-Kelter...the parenting years

by Kelly Coleman Potter

Nod sympathetically if you’ve ever…

…extracted a gum wrapper from a toddler’s nostril, but sought medical treatment when it came to a piece of a colored pencil lodged deeply into an ear canal.
…punished a child because he wouldn’t stop taunting his brother with a Peter Frampton album.
…played a rousing game of “What that’s funky smell?” only to discover what might be a petrifying bologna sandwich behind the recliner.

Taking Off

by Ty F. Clemens

A few years after graduating college, Ty was fed up with "working" and "acting responsibly like every other adult is expected to," and chose instead to quit his job and backpack across Europe and Asia. Taking Off is the mostly true memoir of his trip.Yes, this may come as a shock, but a twenty-something wrote about his experiences travelling. Kind of like when Ashley from HR sent you the link to her vacation blog. The differences being that this book is longer, has less pictures of Ashley in a bikini, and gives you no real obligation to read it since you'll never bump into Ty in the break room where he'll ask you how you liked it. But regardless of obligation, you can still appreciate this book, as it consists of several humorous, interesting, and worthwhile anecdotes that are way more int...

Drive, Ride, Repeat: The Mostly True Account of a Cross-Country Car and Bicycle Adventure

by Al Macy

Author Al Macy is a character and a tightwad with a unique sense of humor. He and his wife squirreled away enough money to retire early, do interesting things, and take unusual trips. As he puts it:

“Every day I wake up with nothing to do, and by the end of the day, I've only gotten half of it done.”

During his working life, Macy was a neuroscientist, computer game programmer, jazz trombonist, chef, CEO, piano player, clam digger, and technical writer.

The book is a journal of a car/bicycle/camping trip from California to St. Louis and back, but Macy promises that “if it starts sounding like one of your brother-in-law’s boring slide shows, I will stop this book, and we’ll turn around and go home. I mean it.”
