One Way Out" is a gripping tale of survival. Five students, in a sudden reality shift, must solve treacherous puzzles to survive. Their journey explores fear, teamwork, and high-stakes choices. Can they find the only way out?
Definitely an enjoyable read that made me feel like I was in a conversation with the author, making the book an engaging and fast read. Split into a few dozen "chapters", or topics, anything and everything related to life at and around work is covered. While some chapters may read like complaints, the author always something provides valuable takeaways.

This is a quick, fun, and insightful read. It is full of advice that would be helpful to anyone, no matter what stage they are in their career. The book covers just about every subject you encounter in a work setting. It’s a very introspective read, loaded with wisdom. I imagine myself reading it again and again and taking something new and valuable out of it each time. I strongly recommend this book to any working and/or aspiring professional!

This is a great book that educates the reader about the basics of the work world, as well as, “the read between the line” knowledge so necessary to be successful. It is especially good for engineers and those that have to work in teams. I bought it for my daughter who will be entering the world of biomedical engineering in May.

Fast read with lots of problem solving and logic. Team building lessons a bonus. Congrats to Eric Hinrichs for creating a Middle School classic

This is a great book for any middle school aged student who may be questioning the importance of education and its impact. This book is similar to a "Choose Your Own Adventure" format, but written as a story. I almost thought of it as a middle school version of the "Breakfast Club" except with puzzles and without the super serious conversations. The puzzles intertwined in the story make you think and problem solve. The students in the story that are tasked with these challenges all bring something unique to the table to help solve these puzzles. They aren't aware of this at first, but during their struggles they learn that their uniqueness is what helps them achieve the goal and that the things you learn in school are important even if you don't see that right away.
