A fresh and innovative route to business and personal success - Polar Bear Pirates contains a whole new universe of characters and terminology that everyone will instantly recognize and relate to. Polar Bear Pirates, highly focused, successful, fun-loving people who truly believe in life before death, are on a quest to reach Fat City. But as we follow the fortunes of these highly motivated bears, we see how they must fight off some pretty ruthless and often highly elusive enemies - enemies who are determined to block their paths and shatter their dreams...

Here's a brief sketch of just some of these treacherous characters...

Sinkers...the bitter losers who, as disciples of the pear shape, despise anyone else's success and derive immense pleasure from torpedoing it...
Head treads...those who block anyone coming up the success ladder; they are devoid of talent, having only got where they are through brown nosing, knife throwing and luck!
Neg ferrets...the pessimistic warriors of doom with insatiable appetites for other people's problems...
Molasses Man.. the sweet but slow, well-meaning people who are burdened by the beliefs of others...
Bloaters...boasting, lazy, obnoxious and tediously egotistical reptilian saddos who are absolutely full of it!

Written in the tradition of the bestselling, Who Moved My Cheese, Polar Bear Pirates is a uniquely entertaining and often hilarious look at business and personal development. A 'game book' of questions, answers, traps and signposts, this book delivers powerful, inspirational messages as it helps you to unravel a series of complex motivational issues on your journey to personal and professional success.

Review:
"A motivating and inspiring guide on how to succeed in life and how to deal with various characters you may meet along the way, whether they prove to be friend or foe" (Evening Standard)

"[He] warns that you must have certain qualities to get there (Fat City)... Using a highly original omelette metaphor he suggests that you can have all the ingredients but unless you have an egg you really should 'think along the lines of cheese and toast'. Quite" (The Herald (Glasgow))

"You'll be guaranteed to smirk a bit at Webster's wise-crack filled prose" (www.tuc.org.uk)

"A self help career book for the Nintendo generation" (www.worksmart.org.uk)

"... lighthearted yet meaningful... an inspirational book... should st on the shelf of any line manager who wants to inspire the sceptics" (Personnel Today)
From the Author:
Originally I just wanted to bring more fun into the workplaces I was in and at the same time find a different and effective way of motivating others.

Over the years I developed characters and 'viruses' that people can easily relate to and gradually created a whole new world of terminology based around my own experiences.

In my opinion Polar Bear Pirates offers those who read it an alternative 'fun game attitude' to help them achieve success in and out of work.

Hopefully it will be a motivational book that people will actually enjoy reading!
