Book Review: Screw Work, Let's Play

We are delighted for our friend John Williams whose great book: Screw Work, Let's Play: How to Do What You Love and Get Paid for it has just hit the shelves and is already being billed as the next self help best seller.

If you're bored with your job and looking for some inspired ideas on how to escape the corporate treadmill and make money doing something you love instead, rush out to your nearest bookshop or click through to Amazon to get a copy now.

John's book is packed with examples of people who have done just that, including several interviews with Sophie, founder of Beyond Chocolate.

We love Screw Work, Let's play because the approach John lays out to transforming your relationship with your work and your career is so similar to Beyond Chocolate's approach to transforming your relationship with food and your body. Lots of big, groundbreaking ideas packaged in an accessible, bitesized format...just the way we like it.

Congratulations John!

  1. I have been reading biographical information on the sales page for Australia and other sales pages about the author of this book. He claims in addition to his absolutely spectacular resume of top jobs, that he had seven years' experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist.

    The biography does not state where and when he studied these subjects.

    The author did run a 'creative coaching' practice for quite a number of years during the noughties called

    I am very pleased to see that the author is these days an 'accredited coach' with an 'Advanced Diploma with Distinction' obtained from 'The Coaching Academy'. I am unable to locate their 'Advanced Diploma' course on their website, but that's probably just down to my usual ineptitude but I did note that one can obtain a certificate in coaching by doing a two day course there.
