"One point Nadine learns from her experience is that we are all allowed to choose how we ingest what life deals us and I thank her for reminding me. And her humor! If she ever wants to look for a second occupation, she might want to consider 'stand-up comic'" Tony Ortez, Howler Magazine

"Reading this book is worth many, many laughs and is a welcome break from typical every-day life in the US." Heather Hill, heather-leigh-hill.blogspot.com

I recommend it to anyone who can see humour in every day things.
I absolutely loved this book; the author certainly doesn't sugar coat her experience: yes, there are lots of potholes in the roads, and some American products are expensive (like Windex), but she also shows us that anyone with a small passive income can do this-- move away to a tropical paradise and live a very different life.
My husband and I have been researching our own move for months, and we've already planned our first trip for Decemeber. Thanks Nadine! You gave us hope that we can really do this!
Another impotent point - thru the series you can the author is smoothing life in Costa Rica. I love that she is honest about the negatives, but reminds you to focus on the positive experiences. I've read too many books that try to gloss over the realities and just sell beaches and monkeys. While I hope the yoga on the beaches, monkeys, sloths and birds will be worth it for me. But The more information I get about what to REALLY expect if I jump greatly improves my chance for success!
Continue the journey - get the sequel and the Escape Manual. I did and am glad.
Sadly, the usage errors in the text (prospective vs. perspective, taught vs. taut, etc) were a big distraction for this reader. It's too bad the book didn't get more editorial attention -- it really deserves a good couple of rounds with the red pen. And by deserves, I mean that in the nicest way. I have spent money on flawless books that weren't nearly as good (or funny) as this one was. A star and a half deducted for the errors.
