5.0 out of 5 stars Honest, practical and immensely inspirational., 27 May 2013

This review is from: The Escape Manifesto: Quit Your Corporate Job - Do Something Different! (Paperback)
I was given a copy of the Escape Manifesto the day before launch, and have barely been able to put it down since. It's full of inspirational quotes and stories of other people who have successfully escaped from the corporate grinder, in order to do what they want. What's so incredible about this, is that while many of them share the same kind of background, all of their escape stories are different. These stories alone could be a book, but the Escape Manifesto doesn't end there.

Each chapter is like a guide, gently nudging you toward the realization that you as well can escape. I say guide, because while this book is genuinely inspirational, it also comes full of practical advice for how to go about making the escape. You very quickly get the sense that these guys did a lot of research before making their escape, and it's all been condensed into this easy to read book. The references alone are worth the price of admission! (NB: I was given a free copy of the paperback, but bought the kindle version - it's that good!)

I've read a few books like this before, and while most of them were very inspirational they were also unable to answer that really tricky question - "if not this, then what?" This question is repeated throughout the book and while only you can answer it, this book will help you give the tools to do so. It gives you solid, practical advice for preparing and executing your escape as well as provide you with lots of inspiration and resources from other escapees.

If you feel stuck in your career - maybe even your life - then read this book. It'll give you the inspiration, advice and perhaps most importantly the courage you need in order to successfully escape!
