California Escape Manual: Your Guide to Finding a New Hometown

Remember Ross Perot's "giant sucking sound"? According to the author, the new sound being heard around the West Coast is a giant clanking sound as the Golden Gate slams shut behind an estimated 500,000 former residents of California who flee the state each year looking for greener pastures elsewhere in the West. Since many of them came to California looking for something better than what they'd left behind, one can only wonder whether they are doomed to be landlocked "Flying Dutchmen" seeking what they consider to be paradise. Bacon, a business writer who moved to Las Vegas from the Orange County area (from one Disneyland to another?), has compiled a smart and sassy guide for those considering escape from earthquakes, mud slides, traffic jams, high prices, droughts, and O.J. This book is hard to pigeonhole; its main focus is relocation, but there are also strong chapters on buying and selling homes, job hunting, Internet searching, and retirement planning. The book will have its greatest impact in California libraries, but surrounding states will also want to grab a copy to prepare for the apparent influx of escaping Californians.Joseph L.
