Too bad that the young men referred to in David Lauderdale's Feb. 18 column ("Unemployed? Then dress like you really want a job") hadn't read "Skills for Life" by Mike Jarvis and Jonathan Peck.
If they had, maybe they would have learned "The Fundamentals You Need to Succeed," as taught in this excellent how-to book.
Jon Peck, who lives locally, has worked with a number of young people in the area. Perhaps some of those young men who were prepared and were "dressed for success" were his students.
