Review:

A wonderful book with wonderful content, wonderfully presented. Rory Sutherland, Vice-Chairman, Ogilvy Group UK BBC News Out of Office, is a hymn to coffee-shop creativity and the myriad advantages of ditching the deadening confines of the office and working where you like. Management Today A collection of anecdotes, mantras and aspirational shots. Now is the moment for us to throw off the shackles of the office - the overheads, the presenteeism, the time wasted on commuting - and embrace the 'Out of Office state of mind', where freedom, flexibility and the stimulation of being out in the world leave you happier and, crucially, more productive than you ever were before. By Justine Roberts (Founder Mumsnet.com) Financial Times You can save money and have happier workers if they labour from home, car or an espresso bar. A nifty new book called Out of Office by Chris Ward, is a manifesto in favour of roaming around using temporary hotspots to work. It was hard for me to resist this manual. The anti-office movement is probably a good thing for the morale of your people, your cost base and the productivity of your teams. By Luke Johnson (Chairman of private equity house Risk Capital Partners LLP ) and chairman / part owner of many food retailers. The Sun This fantastic book encourages us to achieve more and work where we like. I recommend leaving a copy on your bosses desk. (4 out of 5) Monocle Radio At Monocle we realise that executives and entrepreneurs often have their best ideas over their morning flat white. The coffee shop is not just where people go to relax, meet friends and read the paper, it s where a growing tribe of people go to work; start-us, entrepreneurs, freelancers, solo workers and even executives are swapping the corner office for the corner coffee shop with quality coffee and quality Wi-Fi as todays must-have business tools. So many of todays business ideas are born over a flat white. WorkingMums.co.uk Where do you have your best ideas and feel most relaxed? If the answer is a coffee shop then you're in good company. JK Rowling famously dreamt up Harry Potter in a coffee shop and they were the seedbed of such icons of modern times as Moshi Monsters, instagram and the board game Cranium. Sixtyplussurfers For people that drink or work in coffee shops - this is the ultimate inspirational and informative coffee table business book! Out of Office is the business book where you learn from the biggest names and smartest thinkers on how to escape the rat race feeling and live life to the full. Contentedbaby.com If you've ever felt you'd like to follow in JK Rowling s footsteps, or that doing any other kind of work from a cafe is a rather pleasant idea, then Chris Ward's new book Out of Office may be just the inspiration you need. This book will certainly convince you to question whether you really need to be spending money hiring office space when you could work just as effectively from a cafe. --http://workwhereyoulike.tumblr.com/post/56778259403/thanks-very-much-to-all-the-journalists-who-have
