From the author of the bestselling Fat, Forty
and Fired - a seriously funny book about life's big - and small -
Ever felt overworked and underlaid?
Or that you're slogging away in a job you don't enjoy to buy things you don't need to impress people you don't like?
And that sometimes self-help books are no help at all?
If so, Nigel Marsh knows how you feel. In this, his latest book, the bestselling author of Fat Forty and Fired recounts anecdotes from his recent family and work life that have given him pause to stop and think. Candid and inspiring, Marsh will make you laugh out loud as he tackles topics as diverse as work-life balance, sex in marriage (or lack of it), parenting, death - even dog ownership.
Marsh's disarming humility and self-depreciating humour make a refreshing change from those experts who claim to have all the answers. Instead, Overworked and Underlaid is simply one vertically challenged man's view of life - from the ground up.
'Couples warning! Buy two copies and read them in separate, soundproof rooms . . . An irresistible invitation to laugh your way to a better view of the world.' - Stephanie Dowrick
