      "Nice book. Great narrator. Good to read."

      - If you can afford this book you can go to one-year sabbatical.
      - You can start today, now. Just do a first step.
      - You don’t need to quite your job or take a free leave. Maybe there is another option.
      - Treat sabbatical as an investment – in your relationship, health, new skills.
      - After first long sabbatical it’ll be hard to find the word: I Can’t.

      If you want to give yourself a few months sabbatical – read this book. Specially chapters 1, 2 and 5. If you don’t know how to provide income for your jorney or want to automate your business read instead 4-Hour Workweek by Tim Ferriss.

      "Well Written and Read"

      The premise of the book, that "anyone who can afford this book can take a sabbatical", sets a high bar for delivery. And it does deliver. And it's quite easy really. I highly recommend this book.

      When I think about vacations, I think in terms of thousands of dollars per week. At that rate, a real 6 months off is out of reach. But thats not how it has to work. In some places in the world, $1000 a month can cover all your expenses. And some are less.

      This book deals with helping employees and business owners to get away.

      "Awesome Book !!"

      I am an avid, long-time audio book consumer (over 100 Audible titles). I rarely take the time to write a review, but this book has had such a profound effect on me I felt the need to share my thoughts.
      The book is well written and well read. The author(s) are newcomers. It they can sustain this quality of book, I am sure they will enjoy a successful and fruitful career.
      This book force me to question and redefine many of my core values. It opened my eyes to the prospect of challenging the "normal" North American balance of work, time off and travel. It entertained me and made me laugh. I recommend this book, without hesitation, to anyone who has imagination and an open mind.
