The Radical Sabbatical

The Millennial Handbook to the Quarter Life Crisis


Named the FT's Business Book of the Month; for fans of Tim Ferris's 4-Hour Work Week and  Emma Gannon's The Multi-Hyphen Method, this is the careers book for millennials.

So, you hate your job and your avocado obsession will apparently prevent you from ever owning a home?


You are not alone; 72% of millennials want to change career completely. 

If you're feeling trapped in your job, The Radical Sabbatical offers a way to rethink your career and figure out what is right for you, by helping you to:

  • identify exactly why you don't like your job

  • figure out what you would like to do instead

  • offering practical and realistic guidance on how to move from your current job to your dream job

  • the importance of work experience at any age

  • 25 career profiles of jobs that you've always been told aren't real jobs, from archaeology, tour guiding and blogging to alpaca farming, travel writing and being a movie extra

  • how to network like a boss, including how to use social media to get a new job

  • why a portfolio career might be the answer you've always been looking for

  • how to start your own portfolio career


This step by step guide shows you how to find the opportunities, time and the money to set a new course towards work that you love, while challenging us all to question our career assumptions.

Witty, massively knowledgeable, and straight talking. --Bustle

A practical and inspiring guide that'll leave you planning a whole new achievable future. Lady, we salute you. --Stylist

Rosen makes you think about work and what we want from it in a very different way - it is more practical and so the outcome will probably be a better fit for your personality, your skillset and what you actually want. --The Financial Times

This is a must-read book for millennials because the author's experiences are so relatable. It is a fascinating journey to read but, more than that, it really helps you to reflect on your own career and provides practical steps to do so. I would highly recommend! -- Amazon customer

An easy to read book with a focus on finding the right career for you. Would 100% recommend to anyone looking to re-visit their career goals and find happiness in 2019! -- Amazon customer

Such a fresh and inspiring take on discovering your path. What a gap year!!! What a book!!! A good read for anyone embarking on what lies ahead, and those that can help guide too. -- Amazon customer

As a millennial in a desk job this book gave me a fresh perspective on how I can choose to lead my working life and that I don’t have to follow what society tells me to do to be ‘successful’. This advice is packaged in beautiful storytelling which at times made me laugh and even cry. Ideally suited for millennials this booked will be appreciated by a range of ages. -- Amazon customer

Emma Rosen is an excellent case study for millennials who want it all but aren’t quite sure how to get there. Our 9-5 office jobs aren’t giving us what we need or want from a career. Rosen’s sabbatical is inspiring and interesting and just completely brilliant! -- Amazon customer
