What would happen if you did have the nerve to quit your white-collar job? Prioleau Alexander can tell you: he walked away from a lucrative career as an advertising executive, seeking a new life. Over the next year he worked minimum-wage jobs as a pizza deliveryman, ice cream scooper, construction worker, ER tech, fast food jockey and even cowboy on a Montana dude ranch. Here, Prioleau explores life at minimum wage and proves unequivocally that the grass is not always greener on the other side.

These adventures are indeed told with great deprecating, sarcastic humor; P. Alexander is indeed a great master of the spin and acting and is able to deftly impart much historical and sometimes exaggerated fact into the background of his new employers to make this very readable and interesting. Do not expect insight into choosing your job path or gaining insight into your discontented self, however. I hope that Prioleau finally comes to the realization that he is an alcoholic. That is a SAD fact of the deluded self in denial.
