I enjoyed Forty Fat and Fired so I was interested in reading this book. It was entertaining in parts; you could relate to comments Marsh has made but in the end I just wanted to get through the book to finish it without really enjoying it!

A funny, put things in perspective book about live and work-life balance.
Not bad, but overall not that good either. Some of the advice is profound and spot on, however, I felt too that I just wanted to get over the book as I was near its end.
Quite an easy read for a friendly kick up the butt to appreciate life. Some very honest anecdotes and some great life lessons.
Loved this injection of good old british humour
Not as good as fat forty and fired
