    "Fresh but limited"

    On the whole there is not much new in this book but what you do get is a refreshing approach which looks at business start up in a much less pompous way than many other guides. It challenges some of the more traditional mantras that can be off-putting and overwhelming. There is genuine encouragement and enthusiasm in the author but the book is aimed at a specific type of business/self-employment (blogging/writing online) so is limited if your idea does not fit within the scope of the so-called free-ranger. There are some useful exercises throughout - you don't just read, you have to do stuff! There is a life-coaching element to this book, which as usual, tends to shun realism and the likelihood of failure. For me, a dose of reality is essential in order to move forward and I think certain factors that may seem negative should be acknowledged and dealt with rather than pushed aside - apparently, this may make me a 'beige' person...

    "Amazing must have for all free thinkers out there"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is amazing. At the least it is inspiring and thought provoking. I write limited reviews, but this one I had to share. It is changing my life in the direction I always wanted to go but thought there were too many obstacles. Now I see that the only obstacle was ME!
    Thank-you to audible for making this available, and most importantly, to Marianne for writing it. I have bought copies for the people whom I hold close because I believe it can change their lives too. Buy it and you won't regret it.


    What about Caroline Lennon’s performance did you like?

    Caroline has just the right voice and approach. Quirky, down to earth, with a little tongue in cheek that I could relate to. In the wrong hands, or voice, some of the content could have come across as patronising, but her delivery was excellent.
    I think Marianne/her publishers made a good choice in getting an expert to deliver the content. Other than biographies, and then only some, my experience is that writers don't always manage to deliver which can detract from the book.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes ! Totally inspired to use the advice in this book and change not only mine, but thos of my loved ones and close friends.

    "THE most fantastic "self-help" book"

    I don't think I have ever read a better "self-help" book. Well and clearly delivered, stuffed with really useful links, information and exercises, this is not your average coaching volume. The only possible disadvantage to listening on audible rather than reading is precisely the wealth of weblinks, which are far more difficult to note when read out loud, and that is is more difficult to break off to do exercises than it would be in hard copy.

    I think this is going to prove a life changing tome... Don't hesitate an instant.

    "Fabulous, easy listening and informative"

    I have listened to this book in just under a week, thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking for other books by Marianne Cantwell. I have found plenty of useful info in this book and intend listening to it again several times just in case I missed anything. The narrator Caroline Lennon is very easy to listen to.

    "Practical how-to guide with insightful questions"

    A guide full of personality, mostly common sense with really good insights into what to do or not to do, from the many case studies.The author asks questions to focus the mind on what works for you. There are many exercises and added value for the listener, so the 'bookmark' function of the Audible Android app was used lots.

    "MOTIVATING, INTERESTING AND ENGAGING MUST LISTEN"

    I was unsure about an audio version of a book, but I have to say that once you get passed the strangeness of listening to a voice reading to you, the experience gets better and better.

    This particular book is highly recommended by me. The examples and inspirational and it puts your life into perspective. It wasn't repetitive and the actual case studies are transferable to an 'ordinary' person's life. If you are looking for something which helps to get you started with your new business projects, this is the book.

    "So good, I listened twice and will again!"
    If you could sum up Be a Free Range Human in three words, what would they be?

    Encouraging, motivating, enabling


    What other book might you compare Be a Free Range Human to, and why?

    The Escape Manifesto: Quit Your Corporate Job - Do Something Different!It gives you the tools to DO something rather than just waffling on about an alternative life that someone else is enjoying, nor does it tempt you with an idea all the way through the book for you to find that it's just a book about a get rich quick scheme.It made me feel life I was empowered to actually follow in other peoples' footstep, not just watch them walk away from me with my dream!


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    It's a non-fiction book, so no 'scenes' as such, but several of the real-life examples are great


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it, as it has made me realise that I CAN start now, without a huge amount of money behind me.


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to it more than once - you will get something else from this fantastic book every time that you listen to it!

    Good luck with breaking free :)

    "Inspiring!"

    I love this audio book, it opens your mind to a completely new way of thinking and is full of really useful, relevant practical advice. I'm on my 3rd listen now and even considering buying it in book format to get the web addresses etc. all in one easy place for reference.



    Can highly recommend!

    "Pure Inspiration for the jaded"

    I have downloaded many self help books, but this is my favorite by far. The author is pure inspiration. The beginning of the book goes through questions and answers which explore your inner depths, and what you want out of life.So many people are desperate to quit their jobs and live the free range lifestyle. If you are one of them, then this book is for you.I'm not going to say that you will be walking out of your job a week later, but it's a very good starting point. The only criticism is that I found a couple of chapters to be very corporate orientated, but the book is lengthy and there are lots of other chapters that are pure gold, for people from every background. I loved the ending, where the author talks about her mother, it's so sincere and heartfelt, you can't fail to be moved. I have no doubt I will listen to this book time and time again.
