As someone who went through some "wheel-spinning" while figuring out a new career direction, let me start by saying I wish I'd had Jaime's book three years ago. It would have saved me a ton of time.

On top of giving me a good read that makes me want to go back and watch the Next Internet Millionaire series over again to see if I can pick up on some of what Jaime says was going on, she also provided some great suggestions for helping to plan out a path to success. And I'm not just talking about financial success. I found a lot of the Life Lessons she brings up apply to creating a more successful life for yourself in general. Greater overall happiness, know what I mean?

Is this the cure-all for the plight of the office worker? Of course not. Success requires that we work to achieve it and take responsibility for our lives. What Cubicle Slave provides is a great roadmap. Like Jaime, I hadn't ever thought I could make money based on my interests. After reading her book, I'm starting to see how I can make this work. She got out of the cubicle world. Now I know I can too.

Heavy on Gossip, Light on Marketing or "Quit Your Job" Content Nov. 23 2007
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
First of all, apologies for having to write this as a "kid." This whole online marketing community is inbred though and the anonymity by doing so is the only way to really be honest. As one person already mentioned, all the 5-star reviews are from insiders who are on Joel's payroll (via his affiliate program or a place on the show) and have something to gain by saying nice things. Do these guys think we're stupid?

Jaime has a light writing style, which makes the book very easy to read. Unfortunately, what she spends the majority of her time talking about is the "gossip" element of the show. It reads like a conversation in her head. Wonderful if you're a fan of People Magazine or Perez Hilton, but this is supposed to be a marketing book and I expected a bit more content in that area. There is certainly some good stuff within the book, but the specific content about quitting your job is given over 6 pages at the end, in an appendix.

But Jaime has VERY LITTLE CREDIBILITY when it comes to giving advice for how people can quit their jobs. She was on an online based reality show, walked away with cash in hand, and then quit. She was at that job for five years before that. Do you think she would have walked out otherwise?

But I like Jaime and I hope to see more from her. She certainly has skills in the copywriting and organization areas. She could easily make a career out of being a support person for these guys, organizing big products and teleclasses. Or maybe, in the future, she'll do something big on her own. I don't currently see her as the expert she markets herself as. Joel's just given her the keys for a couple of weeks. He'll be on to his next product soon and will take the keys with him, so time will tell.

Bottom line - this book is a success because of Joel and all his affiliates. He's the puppet master here.

It's easy to quit a job. The hard part is staying in that situation. Only time will tell for Jaime. And that's why it's too early to come out with a book about quitting your job. It's like me going on a cruise ship for a week and writing a book on how anybody can sail around the world.

WIth that said, the book is great for people who are looking to get into the mind of the average newbie. If you're looking to develop products in that market, you'll find it very helpful. It's also helpful, to some extent, to see how Joel ran things on Next Internet Millionaire.

I'm giving this book 3-stars because watching the process of how this (and the other Next Internet Millionaire) projects has been worth that. It was brilliant for him to pick two people to do major launches at the end and you can bet money that we'll be hearing from the people who didn't make it so far, with Joel helping out and taking a piece of the action.

Mixed Feelings Nov. 14 2007
By Phyllis Staff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For a behind-the-scenes look at the first internet reality marketing competition, you can't beat this book. Well-written and entertaining, it weaves Jaimie's life lessons and show gossip perfectly.

Where it's weak is in presenting the content from marketing professionals who appeared on the show. Here only once-over-lightly information appears. Could be the meat of the professional content has been saved to present during the 12-week seminar that is promoted in the downloadable workbook. You'll have to pay to find out.

So . . . five stars for Jaimie's writing and story-telling, one star for solid marketing content, yielding an average three stars for the book. I hope we'll be hearing more from her, and I hope what we do hear will be full of content as well as charming story-telling.

A little bit like a buried treasure hunt... Nov. 20 2007
By Meredith Eisenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a fan of the Next Internet Millionaire Show, I was interested in reading the book and getting an "inside" take on the show. Jaime's story was very interesting although it seemed a bit long at times. Interspersed in the narrative, are some terrific nuggets of information about how to build your business (online or not). I would have liked to see a bit more detail rather than outlines... but she does have a course to give too.

Good Luck Jaime!

Nothing worthy in this book May 29 2008
By Piles of Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Don't bother buying this book. It is written by a young woman who, quite frankly, needs to read other books by people who have "done it". She doesn't know anything worth your time and money. Sorry to be blunt ... but there it is.

Well Presented With Good Content but Lacks Credibility Feb. 13 2013
By The Extraordinary Tourist (TET) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Jaime Luchuck was one of the two winners on Joel Comm's Next Internet Millionaire Game show web series. This book is her reward for having won the show. I bought it on the strength of that and, knowing that she had been mentored by Joel, expected a great product.

What you end up with is a book based on Jaime's experiences on the show written as a work book for how to break out of cubicle hell and into your own self employed marketing business. It's easy enough to read and the concepts and ideas are sound given they're based on information Joel presented to contestants on the show. The problem is that Jamie really lacks credibility as an original thinker and 'marketing guru'. If you haven't seen the show you've probably never heard of her.

It's worth a read for the content but in the back of your mind you'll want to know where Jamie is now, several years after winning the show? A quick Google search on her name reveals she doesn't appear to have done much after this book was published.
