We deliver to most countries worldwide. Enter your delivery address during checkout and we'll display the shipping cost when we know where to send your book.

How do supporter names work?

Every person who pledges to help to make a book gets their name included in a supporter section as a thank you as long as they pledge before the list closing deadline. If you want to add a different name, this can be changed in your account after you have completed your pledge.

Will the book and rewards that I receive look the same as the images shown on the Unbound website?

Book designs, cover and other images are for illustrative purposes and may differ from final design.

Part memoir and part extremely helpful guide to what to do when you find yourself out of work, by someone who has been there, got the t-shirt and then some.

Having been made redundant three times in five years, Kim draws on her own experiences and numerous life lessons to address some perennial issues and hot topics of the current climate: the importance of perspective; how to build confidence when you're at your lowest ebb; how to overcome and use vulnerability; imposter syndrome; the importance of reframing; and how to turn negatives into enormous positives.

Including personal anecdotes and inspirational quotes from well-known women who have been there, the book also incorporates cleverly devised exercises to enable the reader to put to good use, and into working practice, the information and knowledge gleaned from each section.
