5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, Honest, Encouraging, February 15, 2011
This review is from: The 9-to-5 Cure: Work on Your Own Terms and Reinvent Your Life (Paperback)
I find the book to be both practical and honest, and when presented with a warm and encouraging voice, it was an overall good read! I like that the author asks really pragmatic questions (e.g. How much money do you need to live the lifestyle you want?) and then challenges the reader to step outside of our comfort zone in thinking of ways that we can make that money. The reality is that the principles outlined in this book aren't a one sized fit all way of working for everyone. I think plenty of people who need certainty in how/when/where their income is coming from won't necessarily be the person who thrives on a patchwork lifestyle. But for the person who seeks a way to lead a more entrepreneurial lifestyle of making money, and who is willing to spend time and effort designing a new way of work, this book will be a great tool in helping them along. For me, I'm still figuring out what work style would suit me more, and I find myself thumbing through the 9-to-5 Cure every few days, and am thankful that my good friend sent me this book!
