From the back:
The Art of Quitting is delicious food for thought for those bored with their jobs, or in a tired relationship, or simply overdue for a fresh breath of personal freedom. Mixing humor, cracker-barrel philosophy, and plain common sense, author Evan Harris offers realistic advice on more than twenty techniques for the easiest, most stisfying way to get out of virtually any nasty situation. Perhaps you long to renounce the cage of middle management for the free and easy life of a painter in Tahiti. (Quite your job.) It could be that all the classes you'd wanted to attend were full when you went to register. (Quite school.) Or maybe you've suddenly realized that if you don't break it off now, you'll end up like so and so. (Quite your lover.) Though it flies in the face of conventional wisdom, it is an undeniable truth- quitting can be the best decision you'll ever make.
