Disclosure: I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book and consider the author a personal friend. However, none of that prevents me from giving my honest impression in this review. If I think the book sucks, I’ll say it sucks.
If you have any interest in entrepreneurship, running your own business, or life in general then I suggest you get thee to Amazon post haste and secure yourself a copy.
I’ve enjoyed Pam’s blog for the past couple of years. Her “voice” is fresh, funny, and down to earth. I expected nothing less in her book, and was not disappointed.
Having been held captive in the Cubicle Nation myself for 20 some-odd years, I can always relate to the advice Pam doles out. Escape from Cubicle Nation is a great read and is chocked full of sage wisdom. One does not have to be a corporate prisoner or a budding entrepreneur to get something of value from this book. Several times I found myself saying, “Huh, I need to do that” or “Great idea!”.
I’ve read upwards of half a bazillion books on business, leadership, and entrepreneurship and can honestly say that Escape from Cubicle Nation is one of the best. Let’s face it, business books can be mind-numbingly boring. Not so with EfCN.
For you real estate mavens out there, don’t think that this book won’t apply to you. It’s not just a primer on how to leave corporate America. It’s also about things you can do to make your existing business better, stronger, faster. There are real life examples from real life people. One thing I particularly enjoyed was the discussion of the emotional aspects of venturing off on your own. This is a huge part of running a business and is often glossed over, if discussed at all. Trust me, much of what Pam writes has direct application to real estate ”“ and any business.
Written in a style that will make you smile, nod your head and think, Escape from Cubicle Nation is a must read for anyone remotely interested in improving and building upon their entrepreneurial endeavors.
Congratulations Pam. I know how much effort you put into this, and it shows. I wish you ridiculous success with it. (And the new blog redesign is fabulous. Welcome to WordPress and Thesis!)
