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.

Living in London. Interested in biographies, self development, and books that I can learn from. Like things to be as concise as possible
It's positive, upbeat and mildly motivational.
There's nothing really new in here, it's a rehash of a lot of other similar books.
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.
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.
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!
