This book provides us with access to these insights in an easily digestible and relatable way. He emphasizes the importance of good relationships and communication and provides multiple case studies based in his experience. I can highly recommend this as a read that will help you reflect and put into practice some simple things that will improve your work-life harmony."-- "David Roomes, Chief Medical Officer, Rolls-Royce"

As an employee this has tips and ideas to enable us all to develop skills to perform at our best both at home and at work and better navigate the ever-complex world of work. A superb book for individuals and organisations alike."-- "Dr Judith Grant, Director of Health & Wellbeing, MACE group"
"I'm delighted to fully endorse this well written book on a very important topic - our work life balance. Rick Hughes has expertly accessed this topic with humour, insight and useful calls to action. His case studies provide the reader with a rich seam of experience which magnifies and illustrates the key messages of the book. If the reader is looking for a book which is highly practical, superbly written and reaches the part that others can't reach, then search no further!"-- "Andrew Kinder, Professional Head of Mental Health Services, Optima Health"
"It is great to see a publication that explores such an interesting and engaging topic as work-life balance - one might even call it 'brave' as this area is so personal and diverse, with a variety of meanings depending on where we are in our life. I think the content is well structured, engaging and practical and so I think all readers will benefit from this book."-- "Dr Shaun Davis, Global Director Compliance & Sustainability, Royal Mail Group - Honorary Assistant Professor, University of Nottingham"
