Synopsis: Tony Sharp is an ambitious manager in a company leading the creation of a new business unit. Six weeks into the job, his division is under threat, his staff won't take responsibility and attempts to improve efficiency have had little effect. He realises that a more radical approach is required, but can he convince those around him to take the risk? Successful novelist Polly Courtney, whose works include Golden Handcuffs and The Fame Factor, has teamed up with business entrepreneurs Peter Sayburn and Gideon Hyde, who founded company Market Gravity. Their book Defying Gravity is an unputdownable page-turner, combining Polly's colourful and lively writing style with solutions to real business problems that keep managers awake at night, including; what to do when a key member of your team walks out? Or when there's a hiring freeze? How do you convince the board to invest without setting unachievable targets? Delivering on these key business issues and many more, Defying Gravity will appeal to people working at any level in a large company, facing constant battles to get new ideas and projects delivered. It is aimed at those who are ambitious and aspire to be entrepreneurs, who are interested in business and also want an enjoyable read. The book is inspired by Richard Branson's Screw It Let's Do It and The Goal by Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt.

About the Author: Polly Courtney is a freelance management consultant who writes popular commercial fiction. Her titles are Golden Handcuffs, Poles Apart, The Day I Died and The Fame Factor. Peter Sayburn and Gideon Hyde formed Market Gravity in 2009, a specialist consultancy that helps large companies to develop and deliver new growth initiatives.
