Publisher's Summary

Have you ever felt caught between the tension of a day job and a dream job? That gap between what you have to do and what you'd love to do? All too often, we hear that dreaming big means you quit your day job, sell everything you own, and move to Guam. But what if there were a different way? What if you could blow up your dream without blowing up your life? What if you could go for broke without going broke? What if you could start today? What if you already have everything you need to begin? From figuring out what your dream is to quitting in a way that exponentially increases your chance of success, Quitter is full of inspiring stories and actionable advice. This book is based on 12 years of cubicle living and my true story of cultivating a dream job that changed my life and the world in the process. It's time to close the gap between your day job and your dream job. It's time to be a Quitter.

Just too religious

The author is an evangelical Christian. There's nothing wrong with that and if you're looking for a book by an evangelical for evangelicals, this is a great example. However, if you're really just interested in career advice, know that you're going to get a lot of religious talk in this book.

Chinese Water Torture of a Book

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Say something other than 'don't quit your day job'

What was most disappointing about Jon Acuff’s story?

Don't quit your day job might be a sound message, but repeating it over and over and over and over and over and over ... When I got to the chapter where he goes through a list of all the things you can buy with money from your day job (you can pay your dental bills with money from your day job, you can buy shoes with money from your day job) I could not take it any longer and shut it off. I just imagined his editor making the 'stretch' hand-sign and sending him home with instructions to bring back a longer book. Several times.

What about Jon Acuff’s performance did you like?

He is enthusiastic.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration - he does not seem to understand that I get it, and he just keeps repeating the same message over and over.

Any additional comments?

I have over 400 Audible books and this is the first one where I will be asking for my money back. It would have been a great message if it had been half an hour long. At almost 6 hours it's way, way too long.
