Cash Out is one of those novels that begs for more adjectives: relentless, madcap, polished, lean, vivid, warped, original, horrifying and hilarious in equal measure. This is nonstop, mercilessly hilarious, no-holds-barred fiction for fans of The Hangover and Office Space-an outrageous tall tale that follows one desperate, disgruntled Silicon Valley exec through a his surreal three-day scramble to cash out his stock options and leave behind his hated high-tech job before outrageous villains (and even crazier friends) completely destroy him.

A careening plot, plenty of action, outrageous bad guys, an otherworldly milieu, and many laughs make Cash Out a must-read for crime lovers with a taste for the bizarre. In this world where making quick money is all the rage, it's quite dead-on. - Metro Silicon Valley.

From the author of Cash Out, a hilarious novel about one working stiff's day of hooky-reminiscent of Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Office Space-and the insanity that ensues. Rick Blanco walks out of meetings. He's a serial meeting ditcher. He's so good that no one seems to notice when he just gets up and walks out. A corporate illusionist of the covert kind, he learned his trade studying a former colleague, the master of meeting ditches, Bob Watson

Imagine a story by Ben Mezrich (The Accidental Billionaires, 21) of staggering financial improprieties infused with Tim Dorsey’s (Hurricane Punch, Gator A-Go-Go) zany, over-the-top pure insanity, and you might have something somewhat resembling Cash Out, the rollicking debut novel  by Greg Bardsley. This is nonstop, mercilessly hilarious, no-holds-barred fiction for fans of  The Hangover and Office Space—an outrageous tall tale that follows one desperate, disgruntled Silicon Valley exec through a his surreal three-day scramble to cash out his stock options and leave behind his hated high-tech job before outrageous villains (and even crazier friends) completely destroy him. Do you like the wildly satirical work of Tom Perrotta, Sam Lipsyte, and Gary Shteyngart? Do the ingenious comic caper novels of Elmore Leonard leave you breathless and exhilarated?  Then get ready to Cash Out.

It's hard to see why anyone but an adolescent boy would find this humorous. The ideas behind the book sound like it could be very funny and also a bit thought-provoking (long work hours damaging a marriage, the unimportance of material possessions, not judging people by first impressions). But it isn't either funny or thought-provoking. Don't waste your money on this one.

It was enjoyable with all of its quirky characters. It moved along quickly and the main character was very believable.

I enjoyed this book. I really got into the characters and the story. The situations Dan gets into were so over the top that I actually ended up feeling relieved at some points when I remembered that it was only a book.

The plot unfolds quickly and it's resolution takes a long time to develop, along the way there are many details and tidbits shared that keep your interest engaged. I'm not usually able to focus on novels for very long and need to switch to some type of non-fiction, but this book was a different story. I couldn't put it down and the details of life in the Bay Area were so right on point! Excellent read.
  • Anayalore
Funny caper about a bunch of nerds in the tech industry. Reads like Elmore Leonard meets the Coen Brothers.
  • Mallador
cute and numerous.
  • Buzatus
Author Greg Bardsley has woven a deliciously madcap and almost unbearably hilarious story about a Bay Area speechwriter, Dan Jordan, who is just days away from finally, deservedly and blissfully escaping the Silicon Valley grind, by cashing out his company stock and taking his wife and two kids to live happily ever after at the beach. If only! But a band of annoying IT geeks have other plans for Dan. So do a thug-like Corporate security man and an off-his-rocker neighbor, aptly nicknamed Crazy Larry! "Cash Out" is raw, spicy, gritty, twisting, turning, rollicking good fun! Buy this book, and let the riotous mayhem begin!
Highly entertaining and highly recommend. Reminded me of the movie "The Hangover" in style. Not sure what I can add to the other reviews except contrary to some, I still rooted for the protagonist throughout, even though he is not perfect.
