The Art of Quitting by Evan Harris
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Patience may be a virtue, but quitting is an art! The Art of Quitting is delicious food for thought for those bored with their jobs, in a tired relationship, sick of their apartment or simply overdue for a fresh breath of personal freedom. Don't be fooled, quitting is a true art form! Mixing humour, cracker-barrel philosophy, and plain common sense, author Evan Harris offers realistic advice on more than twenty techniques for the easlest, most satisfying way to get out of virtually any nasty situation. Helpfully, we are instructed on such approaches as Make a Scene, Achieve and Vanish and Burn a Bridge. Quitters are stars in the universe of decision-making. Quitters take chances. Quitters decide for themselves when enough is enough. Perhaps you long to renounce the cage of middle management for the free and easy life of a painter in Tahiti. It could be that all classes you'd wanted to attend were full when you went to register. Or maybe you've suddenly realised that if you don't break it off now, you'll end up like so and so. Though it flies in the face of conventional wisdom, it is an undeniable truth: quitting can be the best decision you'll ever make.
