A pleasant and interesting collection of vignettes about identifying and prioritizing what's important to you in life, and taking the steps necessary to achieve your goals. Though The Escape Manifesto is quite pointedly aimed at corporate cubicle dwellers longing for a more meaningful occupation, the book actually contains a number of thought-provoking philosophical musings and historical quotations that offer much more generalized application.

Not a bad book, but not a useful book. Perhaps would be good for someone who has never read anything about entrepreneurship. Even so, 4 Hour Workweek would be a much better alternative.

Interesting points on how to find your path. Is it worth a book? I think that depends on where you are in the process.

An excellent book which makes you think about what you want to do in life. One I will probably return to.

Most useful part of the book is getting inspired by all the stories of people who are capable of chasing new adventures
