Some of the reviews:
Best sleep I have had in a long time, BUT, this is because after reading the book, I stopped worrying about some of the business issues I have been facing.
This book has the potential to save you a few hundred pounds or more on a business coach and for me is a timely reminder of the importance of perspective in life and in business.
My youngest son, said, “Dad, I have never seen you read a book”. Sad. I know, but apart from fond memories of reading Lord of the Flies and Great Expectations at school and the drudgery of countless law books through law school, I am not a big fan of them, leaning towards business articles, visual content and audio.
Perhaps this is why I found it such an enjoyable, insightful and an easy read. The collection of 36 articles, brought together in one book made this an effortless read and one that filled me with a positive and optimistic outlook.
I have been in business a long time now. This book proves you genuinely can learn something new each day and even if you know some of what is in this book, it serves as a brilliant reminder as it can be far too easy to slip back into a state of ignorance.
I am sure I will be revisiting many of the chapters during the year ahead and beyond and I would recommend anyone, whether thinking about starting a business or a well seasoned entrepreneur to read this book.

I don’t often write reviews but I felt compelled to write one after being put into this great book recently. Too often lifestyle and business books can be overwhelming and hard to digest, but this one is so easy to get into, as a series of articles it means you can pick it up as and when and each section I found very relevant to me and the issues I try and confront when I do allow myself time for perspective… which is all too rarely.
I would definitely recommend to aspiring and actual business owners who are in search for that allusive life balance! Some great ideas and well placed challenges. Would definitely recommend.
