Here are some lovely things people are saying!When I graduated college, I had these grandiose plans to travel the world, move across the country, and/or get an interesting, exciting, temporary job. Instead, I signed onto a two-year job in a field I'm ambivalent about and got into a serious relationship. I've been feeling like I've been closing the doors to adventure on myself, and that I'm going to be stuck at this desk and in this city. The Cubicle Escape Plan reminded me that you can be an adult and still have an adventure and shake things up without shirking all "grown up" responsibility. - Rachel, Rachel Writes Again
The road not traveled. Sarah gives you street signs for many of them in The Cubicle Escape Plan. If you have been dreaming about an escape, you need to read this book. People are having experiences you never even knew about! Pick one of these fascinating adventures suggested, detailed and deconstructed in this book, and you'll be sure to have an amazing story of your own. A great read for non-traditional thinkers and travelers. - Karen, Living Like A Tourist
I learned so much about alternative careers from reading The Cubicle Escape Plan! This is definitely a must-read for any cube-farm dweller working nine to forever and dreaming about breaking free - it’ll give you a kick in the pants and jump-start your escape! I especially liked the handy links to more resources and info.

I am pretty sure I'll take a year off after graduating just to try all these adventures - not sure if I want to donor my eggs, though! These plans are actually possible. Be brave and get out of your comfortable office-chair! - Joanna L.
This book is awesome!! The sheer number of different activities you can sign up for is staggering really. There are so many ideas you've never even thought of – there certainly were for me! One thing I will definitely be trying is house sitting – what a fab way to see the world!
