A Multitude of Hope
A Novel About Rediscovering the American Dream.
By Peter Weddle

The American Dream is over. That's what more than a few people are saying. But, they're wrong.

A Multitude of Hope traces the experiences of three laid-off professionals – all Baby Boomers, but they could be Americans of any age. Their search for reemployment feels like a journey through a modern heart of darkness.

Along the way, however, something extraordinary happens. One of them is contacted by a secret online group of activists called Walden 4G. Its mission? To hack the privileges of investment bankers and hedge funders and destroy their hold on America's workplace. To practice, as they put it, "economic disobedience."

Drawing on the self-reliance of Thoreau's Walden and the quest for an American utopia in B.F. Skinner's Walden Two, Walden 4G shows the three job seekers a different way forward. This new pathway offers them revitalized careers but also requires rethinking their role at work. It confronts each of them with a stark choice: will they accept a familiar but diminished future or will they reset themselves and reclaim the hope-fulness of the American Dream? Ripped right from today's headlines, A Multitude of Hope reveals the inescapable choice that every American must now make.

The Career Activist Republic
By Peter Weddle

A revolution of workplace liberation is sweeping across America.  Don’t miss it!

The nation’s working men and women aren’t becoming free agents.  They’re transforming themselves into “freed agents” … into career activists.  And you can join them!

The Career Activist Republic is based on three startling ideas:

  • Every human being is a person of talent—they are endowed with a capacity for excellence which enables them to accomplish extraordinary feats at work.
  • In today’s turbulent global marketplace, employers are no longer hiring even perfectly qualified candidates—what they want, what they need to employ is talent.
  • That new dependency empowers every American to work for him or herself while being employed by someone else—to create employment security they can actually count on even in difficult times.

The Career Activist Republic will reaffirm your faith in the American Dream
and give you the tools to construct it for yourself.

“The most innovative and exhilarating examination of the American workplace since The Free Agent Nation, and one that makes more sense.”

Recognizing Richard Rabbit
By Peter Weddle

Recognizing Richard Rabbit is a fable for working adults and those who will be, whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first time job seeker, a college junior or a senior executive. It’s a little book that will have a huge impact on your sense of fulfillment and success in the world of work.

In the genre of Who Moved My Cheese?, this tale recounts the adventures of some forest animals who discover the secret to authentic living. Unlike any other book of its kind, however, it’s a story that’s told in two synchronized journeys: one in fiction—the fable—and the other in nonfiction—a parallel self-interview. Together, they invite you to tap into both your creative and analytic talents and learn how you can become the person of your dreams.

Why is that important? Because the first step toward genuine and enduring happiness is recognizing your own true self. When you express and experience that unique person in your career and your life, you empower yourself to be the best you can be. And it’s that superlative version of yourself who grants you the profound contentment, the deep sense of satisfaction that comes from having fulfilled your destiny.

WEDDLE's Guide to Association Web Sites

A growing number of professional associations and societies are now offering job search and career management resources on their Web-sites. WEDDLE’s Guide to Association Web Sites makes sure you can find and use them.

Completely updated for this our 4th edition, WEDDLE’s Guide to Association Web Sites is the only reference of its kind in print. It lists the Web-sites of over 3,000 associations and indicates whether they offer a job board, a resume database and a discussion forum or bulletin board for online professional networking. In addition, the book is organized for easy use, listing the sites by occupational field, industry or other work-related specialization served by the association (e.g., diversity, veterans).

Why is this information important? Because employers and recruiters believe that some of the best prospects for their open positions are found among the membership of associations. From their perspective, these individuals have demonstrated both a commitment to self-improvement in their field and a sense of personal responsibility for such development. And those attributes, in turn, enable them to make a superior contribution on-the-job.

So, what should you do? Use WEDDLE’s Guide to find the international, national, regional and state associations that serve your career field, your employment situation (e.g., senior executive, entry level professional, women in technology) and industry. Evaluate the options (again using WEDDLE’s Guide) and join the groups that will best advance your career. Then, put the job search and self-improvement resources of those associations to work for you.

'Tis of Thee
A Son’s Search for the Meaning of American Patriotism

 By Peter Weddle

When you sit around the dinner table with your kids, do you ever talk about patriotism? Sure, you know what it feels like, but can you tell them what it means? Do you have the words to describe how patriotism is expressed and why it’s important? If not, 'Tis of Thee is for you.

On September 11, 2001, the United States of America was attacked by terrorists. For those of us who lived through their horrific acts, the day began bright with hope and possibilities and ended dark with despair and fear.

As with the attack on Pearl Harbor, the day’s events changed the focus of our lives. America was a nation consumed with its pursuit of Happiness on the morning of September 11th; by the evening of that day, it was united in its determination to protect and preserve Life and Liberty for ourselves and our families, for our present and our future.

This book is about American patriotism. It is an intensely personal book—not unlike Tuesdays With Morrie—written largely in the two years prior to the terrorist assault on this country. It was finished in the week immediately following the attack.

The book recounts the year-long “conversation” between a son and his father, between a living American and one resting in Arlington National Cemetery. Their topics range from the Vietnam War to the American Dream, but always, their conclusion is the same: America is as good, as vibrant, as hopeful as the patriotism of we, its people.
