    "Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you’d love to do? I have. At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, 'I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.'"

    Mike says: "It passed the time, but lacked what I was seeking"
    "Worth the $7 I paid for it."

    If you could sum up Quitter in three words, what would they be?

    Insightful, entertaining, enlightening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    ???


    What about Jon Acuff’s performance did you like?

    He was very engaging. Kept me awake on the road. Very good speaker. However, he is not as funny as he thinks he is!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes...but it took a couple road trips to get through it.


    Any additional comments?

    I've been soaking up all Dave Ramsey & Dan Miller's material. 48 days to the work you love by Dan Miller has way more of the nuts and bolts material that you can actually apply in the work place. Quitter didn't have as much meat to it. But I would definately recommend it to others and I will probably buy the book. I always say if you can pull one thing out of a book and apply it to your life...then it was worth the effort/money to go through it. Quitter opened my eyes to the idea of giving your day job 100% because your side dream job will reflect those work ethics. I am currently guilty of robbing time from my job. Even as I sit here writing this review I am supposed to be working! I definately need to start excersizing that practice! It makes sense. Overall...good book...but not as good as some other career books on the market.
