Review:

'... I like this book. I liked the author's use of humour to get the point across. I liked the layout of the chapters and how the book's gentle meadow-stream flow from one chapter to the next was perfect for people like me. I like the arguments that he presented, and I appreciated the effort put into excellent research with real-world examples ...' Quality World 'A must-read for anyone interested in or embarking on workplace change. A combination of academic rigour, practical experience and case studies, it reflects Lake's long-standing position as researcher and consultant in the field of smarter working.' Flexible Boss, September 2015
