We're receiving warm recommendations for our book from experts and business leaders who've had a preview. Richard Donkin, author of The Future of Work and a former FT columnist, describes it as a "robust and readable analysis of work transformation that deserves to become a classic in its field", while Professor Stewart Friedman of Wharton says it "provides timely insight on the kind of culture organizations need to meet the expectations of today's workforce".

The Department for Transport wants a 30% reduction in commuters during the games. This is an ideal opportunity for businesses to review the travel patterns of their workforce.
