Présentation de l'éditeur

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?

I have.

At first I thought I was the only one who felt that way, but then I started to talk to people and realized we’re becoming the “I’m, but” generation. When we talk about what we do for a living we inevitably say, “I’m a teacher, but I want to be an artist.” “I’m a CPA, but I’d love to start my own business.”

“I’m a _____, but I want to be a ______.”

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.

I feel like a jerk telling you to read this book. I loved reading it but hated the implications. Jon Acuff cuts right through all the crappy excuses that we put between us and our dreams. This book haunts me a month after I finished it. I can't fritter away time on the internet anymore with a clear conscience. I wake up earlier so I can take time to write and focus my thoughts for the day. I find myself trying harder and doing more work at work. It sucks. I miss my life as a slacker.

Acuff writes from his own experiences not in a show off way but in a clever way that gives him credibility. I laughed and cried a little, but in a cool way, not an overly emotional wreck kind of way. Acuff is ridiculously likable which is probably best for him because if I didn't like him, I might try to kick him in the shins for suggesting that a work ethic in your current job will help you prepare for your future dream job.

If you're taking time to read this review, you obviously have time to read something more substantial like a book. Go ahead and buy Quitter. Read it yourself. Give it to your whiny friends who can't figure out why they're not living their dreams. Call your brother or sister and read it to them over the phone. Give it to your kid in the basement who thinks it's normal to live with parents 10 years after graduating from college. You could also do what I did and give this book away with a break up note to your boyfriend, gently implying the relationship is doomed because he won't put away the X Box and become a grownup. So yeah, buy Quitter once, buy it twice, buy an entire case of books. I know you know people who should read it. My guess is you might be one of them, too.

I feel like I know Jon Acuff better after reading this book, but feel no closer to closing the gap between my dream job and my day job. Insights, but nothing revelatory. As someone who has considered alternatives to my day job for longer than a few hours, each of the ideas presented in this book has already crossed my mind. I also felt like the book was geared toward someone whose "dream" was similar to Jon's -- blogging, writing, creating a brand. If that's not what you dream of doing, I'd find another book to read.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Sadly disappointed. 6 novembre 2011
Par One of the few - Publié sur Amazon.com

I bought this book based on the Dave Ramsey association, assuming that it would have something of real tangible value in it. I was mistaken. Don't get me wrong, there is some good advice in here, but not worth the cost of the book. Judging by the amount of people that responded with a positive rating, I am in the minority.

The biggest thing I took away from this book was something I knew before I read it. If you want to know what that is, buy the book. I will not disclose this out of respect for the author. Perhaps this is why I am disappointed with the content of the book. I was possibly expecting too much based the title. After reading the book, I found it is more of an autobiographical account of Mr. Acuff's journey to join the Dave Ramsey organization. The book does note some common sense practices in going about the self discovery process.

The book is full of common sense practices in dealing with the difficulties of fulltime employment while trying to make the switch to something more fulfilling. He is not saying anything new. There is no great revelation to be had by reading this book.

The author describes his journey through his various employers and documents his personal life-lessons. There is really not enough substance to completely fill up a book, so he writes a bunch of seemingly unrelated stories in an attempt to elaborate on his points and quotes from other people. The author constantly references his experiences on his past blogging work to the point where I wished he had done something else. He also continuously references and plugs other people's books. I was left with the impression that in order to completely understand the point the author was attempting to make, I couldn't get it by reading his book; I needed to go buy another book by another author. He also continually pays tribute to Dave Ramsey throughout the book, which is shows he knows which side his bread is buttered.

After I had read through half the book, I was waiting for the author to get to the point, and I found it getting harder and harder to continue reading. Soon, I was skimming over the pages and finding more of the same wordiness. As I did so, it appeared as if there was a minimum word count for the publisher, so a lot of fill stories were inserted. Another interesting point I found was that the author references the importance of selling this book as one of his personal development goals and the investment goals of the Dave Ramsey organization. The fact that I bought the book, their business practices seems to work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Honest, Inspiring Account Every Dreamer Should Read 10 mai 2011
Par bryan r allain - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I received an advanced copy of this book and blew through it in a weekend. It was fantastic.

The reason? Jon delivers a ton of wisdom in a very compelling voice.

Why is his voice compelling? Because he's "been there, done that". He's taken the path from his day job to his dream job. He's made the tough decisions, fought through the mistakes, and lived to tell about it.

Why else is his voice compelling? Because he's hilarious. It's so much easier to digest the wisdom Jon brings when it's broken up with absurd pop culture references and great anecdotes from his own life.

Why do I keep talking in questions? Who knows.

But here's the bottom line: If you're looking for an honest account of what it's like to make the transition from your day job to your dream job, this book is for you. Jon won't sugarcoat the journey or convince you that it's worth making stupid decisions now that you'll pay for later. He stays grounded in reality while inspiring you to truly connect with the things you're passionate about, and he gives you hope and a plan for getting there yourself.

Can't recommend it enough.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Don't be deceived by the reviews...it's not that good! 10 janvier 2013
Par David Johansen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I was really disappointed in this book. Like most, I picked it up based on Dave Ramsey's recommendation as I'm a big fan of his. I went into it thinking that Jon Acuff must be some well-respected, established motivational speaker type like a Stephen Covey, and that this was all of his best advice after years of counseling people about their careers and having gone through the process himself many years before. In reality, Acuff has worked in various jobs over the past 10 years or so (that he complains endlessly about in the book without providing any substantive reasons for not liking them) and then started working for Dave Ramsey literally *right* before writing this book. The book basically says that Acuff was hired by Dave as a speaker/author and suggests that his very first assignment (or one of his first assignments) was to write this book about leaving your day job and starting your your dream job. So Acuff's dream job is basically writing a book about finding your dream job. This is problematic for several reasons, not the least of which are (i) he doesn't have any particularly great insights into making big career moves or any extended experience in this area--he just happened to get hired a month or two before by Dave Ramsey and (ii) very few people can relate to the dream of being a public speaker/motivational author, and even for those who can he doesn't really tell you anything practical for landing a job like that (instead focusing telling you not to quit your current job and lecturing you about not spending time at your current job thinking about your dream job).

The book actually started out with some good and useful information in the first chapter or two. Unlike others, I didn't really mind Acuff's personal stories--I thought they were the most interesting part. What it lacks is substance. Once he gets past the personal stories, there just really isn't much too the book, and all of the filler that he puts in there is entirely unhelpful--I would just find it very wandering and repetitive. I don't blame Acuff as he is just doing the job that Dave assigned him. I also don't blame Dave for recommending the book endlessly--he's just being a capitalist plugging the book that he published and his employee wrote. I guess I blame myself for not looking into the book further. I saw that it had so many five star reviews so I figured it had to be good, but as I was reading it I found it really quite baffling because I thought there was just no way that that many people could find this book to be so great. What I later realized was that a very large chunk of these are from "the Quitter 100" -- that is, the 100 people whom Acuff had read this book before it was published. He thanks them in the book, and if you look through the reviews here on Amazon you will see that a huge chunk of the five star reviews mention that they were given pre-release copies or seem to know Jon personally or at least avidly follow his blog. At least many of them had the courtesy to disclose that they were given advanced copies, but my guess is that if you were to take out all of these reviews the real star rating on here would be noticeably lower.

I'm sure Acuff is a nice guy, and I actually like his writing style and might check out his blog, but I would recommend not being fooled by the reviews on here and not spending your money and time on this one.
