KIRKUS REVIEW

You get the comforts of being in the organization -- steady pay, medical insurance, pension plan and all that."" Sure. ""But, for these comforts, you have to give the organization most of your waking hours and, eventually, your life."" The victims are legion. So Peter Weaver quit being an indentured servant. ""After working for the establishment for more than twenty years I'd had it right up to here."" Finally, after the inevitable conference with his wife, he decided the hell with it. ""I broke and ran."" That takes some guts. And this is his report -- and ""escape plan"" -- on how he managed it and how you night too become your own boss, inc., a free person beholden not to Scrooge or his crotchets but to yourself. There are chapters for older people forced out at 65, restless young people, wasted housewives, and those in what Weaver aptly calls ""the mangled middle."" Realistic, innovative, supportive -- buy this book and change your life?
