"Job Free should be on the required reading list for high school and college students. It offers a concise, compelling blueprint of four different paths that all lead to a job-free life; something that most young people haven't even begun to contemplate. The advice in Job Free is also highly relevant to mid-career and late-career employees seeking a way out of the servitude of working for someone else." -Root of Good (rootofgood.com)
"Job Free is the book I wish I had when we created our plan for financial independence. Jake does a fantastic job combining inspiration and practical examples of escaping the 9-5. His "do what works for you" approach is unique and refreshing in the personal finance community." -Mike Moyer (mikeandlauren.com)

I love the rich examples that he cited from other successful people and how he showed us what to do to apply those in our own life. This book is not for everyone, but for those who want a lifestyle of freedom and living a life of their own choosing, in their own way, it is a must read!
I highly recommend this to my fellow entrepreneurs and freedom-loving people around the world. Read this book. Devour it. Live it. You will be glad you did.
Even though the chapters cover different (and sometimes competing) ways of quitting the rat race, Jake is balanced, helpful, and curious throughout, and it makes a new reader want to approach entrepreneurship, unjobbing, etc. in the same way. Jake's deeper-than-average philosophical and economic understanding helps the book avoid the pitfalls vagueness and wish fulfillment of so much self-help literature, and the practical advice here is tested and achievable.
Regardless of where you stand in your career, you should read it. You need to know that you have options. You need to know that you're doing what you're doing because it makes you come alive. As soon as you know you can live job-free, you'll be completely free to do just that.
I learned a great deal about how to categorize and analyze the different types of entrepeneurship. In fact, I myself have experimented with unjobbing, lifestyle and startup strategies. Recently, I sold my startup and have been exploring the line between lifestyle and startup with my new venture. Perhaps my lifestyle business can be franchised, at which point I need to explain that what I'm offering to franchisees is a lifestyle business. All around, the information in Job Free is highly useful and well researched. Furthermore, it is concise and easy to read.
Most of all, I enjoyed the personal insights from Peter's story. It highlights to me the most important things about entrepreneurship, and the dangers lurking in success. Even as we achieve new tiers of success, it is always important to take time to revisit roots, morals, and long term goals.
For me, Job Free was a wonderful opportunity for both self-reflection and strategic analysis of future plans.
If you are considering breaking out on your own, give this book a read. You will see how your goals fit into one of the 4 job-free lifestyle.

I'm now working to break free from the 9-5, many years earlier than my projected retirement date. This is not a joke! We don't have to accept the rigid structures of society, telling us when to work, what to do and which path we need to walk. We are not cogs in a machine.
We can be free, job free and free to make our own decisions. It's easier than you think.
In the book, the four main routes in becoming Job Free are;
1 - Extreme Savings
2 - Unjobbing
3 - Lifestyle Business
I recommend this book.
