A bold, fearless, uncompromising and yet practical advocacy for a more humane, honest and open world of work.
Every journey starts with the realization that we don’t have to take any more of this crap.
The world of work – and all that’s wrong with it – is dominated by 12 statements. We hear them every day. We utter them at will. But they’re all garbage.
What if we said – no more?
This is the business book for everyone who can’t bear to read business books. Which is most of us. It considers that in being part of the problem – an uncomfortable admission – we may also be the creators of the solution. In uncompromising, engaging and humorous fashion, it dismantles each statement and sets us on the path to a better world of work.
You can read each essay between meetings you’d rather not be at, after which, your working life will never be the same again.

The reality is it’s far easier to convince yourself you’re good at HR or management through platitudes than it is to actually hold a mirror up to yourself and really understand what needs to change. That’s what I got from this book - a call to forget everything you learned and re-frame what work is for, and where work is. It takes the inscrutable understanding of work and through Socratic questioning leads you to better understand work - and your role in it. ~ Gethin Nadin | Author of A World of Good
