  • Evening Roundup: Book recommendation: Fat, Forty and Fired


    I acquired the Kindle edition of Fat, Forty, and Fired: One Man’s Frank, Funny, and Inspiring Account of Losing His Job and Finding His Life by Nigel Marsh a while back when it was a free download, and I finally got around to reading it. The chapters are nice and short, and the first 25 were just okay so I wondered why it was so well-reviewed. Well, the rest of the book was so good I couldn’t stop reading! The subtitle is a really accurate description – the book is frank and inspiring, and at times quite funny. It was so easy to relate to the author – work/life balance is really hard to achieve, parenting is both joyously rewarding and devastatingly trying, and sometimes solutions are simple and other times not. If you’re looking for an easy, entertaining and yet provoking read, I recommend this book (though I would borrow it from the library or wait for the price to drop to $5 or so).
