The PERFECT Holiday Gift
for anyone thinking of starting a micro-business!
If you like your practical business advice served up with a side dish of humour, then this is the book for you. Tips to help you with your new and small business sit side by side with amusing anecdotes and zany asides. The author’s own business experience comes through clearly and makes his suggestions and observations about running your own business much more credible and easy to swallow than that of the usual business school guru. Well worth a read.
Freedom from Bosses Forever
Freedom from Bosses Forever is a book every lover of satire will enjoy, even if they are not interested in starting and running their own business. It has been described as unique by many reviewers and critics because the characters that appear in it are fictional apart from the much derided,Tony Robinson OBE.
‘Snorting with laughter’ is not an unusual reader re-action. The fictional fashionista,and narrator of the story, Leonora Soculitherz (So-cool-it-hurts) takes the reader on a journey of discovery. Soculitherz (single celebrity name like Beyonce, Rihanna, Madonna, Cher and Batman) investigates a government and big business conspiracy whilst unearthing, along the way, the bare essentials of ‘own business’ success.
The business tips that appear throughout the book are real and global entrepreneur and owner of WinWeb, Stefan Topfer has called it: ‘The funniest hard-hitting business book, that is absolutely full of business truth’
The Kindle book and the paperback version of Freedom from Bosses Forever are both improved and updated versions of the award winning ‘Stripping for Freedom’. Freedom from Bosses Forever also contains bonus features. Some of these are ‘just for fun’ but for those that have escaped, or wish to escape the rat race, there are links to the author’s favourite, and free, enterprise support websites.
Reviews from happy readers
I’ve discovered a rare treat. A business book that’s valuable and very funny too. When is the last time you read a business book that made you laugh out loud? Every month there seems to be scores of new books about different aspects of business. Very few focus on the special issues relating to running a business from home. And very, very few have ever made me laugh. This is an exception to the rule. ~~Dave Sumner-Smith is the former Programme Director of Home Business Network and The telegraph Business Club.
Can I sue for emotional stress? OK Tony I am most displeased with you – you shouldn’t have written such a funny book. Picture the scene – we are taking a family break down in Brighton and I have found a good deal at The Grand Hotel (swanky or what) One afternoon it is raining so I decide to have tea and a nice read in the lounge. I stupidly took ‘Stripping for Freedom’ (the forerunner of Freedom from Bosses Forever) with me and firstly had raised eyebrows from the waiter. Secondly and worst – I started laughing aloud so hard that it came out as a snort – v. embarrassing – other guests lowered their copies of the Telegraph and Wisden to look disapprovingly at me! Seriously it is so funny! ~~Tony.’ Eva Davies, Owner of The Electric Zone.
Laughing out loud. I’m really enjoying reading this. Indeed my snort of laughter woke up a few sleeping travellers on a Brighton to Victoria train when I read the part about looking good being simply a matter of how well you tuck in your bits! ~~Julie Stanford owns/designed ‘The Essential Business Guide’
