I read this book some years ago and it has stuck with me for all that time. Maybe it is because somewhere in my psyche I have had those thoughts of just walking away and to read about someone (Jay Carsey) who actually did it has intrigued me. If you have ever, even once, had the thought cross your mind about chucking it all and just walking away, I think this book will intrigue you, too.
