We are writing a book.

It’s called The Escape Manifesto. We are on deadline for October 15th.

We have an engaged group of 200 volunteers helping us with their perspectives and advice in the comments on these posts.

Our last book post was Discussion #7: What do you wish you had known 5 years ago? Thank you for some great comments.

This week we’d like to ask you what you think of the proposed chapter structure…
