Publisher's Summary

You tick all the right boxes; school, university, corporate career. You have a sensible profession, a fancy job title, proud parents, decent salary, pricey holidays...but there's a nagging feeling that something isn't quite right. A realisation that you're not completely fulfilled. Surely you should be as happy as Larry - are you being ungrateful? Hell No.

You want a different life - no spreadsheets, no commute, no late nights at the office. But if not that…then what? That is exactly what Escape The City is here to do: show you what other options are open to you. Escape The City is a community-based website built around a simple concept: there is more to life than doing unfulfilling work in big corporate companies. The online platform is designed to help corporate professionals find exciting jobs, start their own businesses, and go on big adventures.

The Escape Manifesto is here to support, inspire and encourage us all to make big and brave transitions in our lives. It is an inspirational call to action, packed with practical advice and encouragement. If you work in a corporate job that doesn't make you tick and you have ever wondered whether there is more to life, this book is for you. Step off the corporate treadmill - find an exciting job, start your own business, or go on a big adventure. Stop dreaming, start planning and do something different!

Nothing out of the ordinary

What did you like best about The Escape Manifesto? What did you like least?

It's positive, upbeat and mildly motivational.<br/>There's nothing really new in here, it's a rehash of a lot of other similar books.

Was The Escape Manifesto worth the listening time?

I think if you've never read any similar 4-Hour Work Week style books then yes. Otherwise it's probably not worth the time. I don't feel I gained any particular insight from it.

Book with great content and spirit to it!

Where does The Escape Manifesto rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top. It was super fun to listen to and I learnt a lot of useful tips and things to consider for the career change I am currently undergoing. The book has a very natural development of the plot, it doesn't have too much artificial structure, what made it a nice story to listen to. It is full of good references to the other career change books too.

What did you like best about this story?

It was fun and lively! Very well read too. It was a real delight to listen to it while cycling, thus, finished it in under a week! I really liked honesty of the guys who have written it. It felt REAL, full of personal and other people experience, thus, I could largely relate to some situations described. Very inspiring to take actions!
