9780749954024: Fat, Forty and Fired: The Year I Lost My Job and Got a Life

Approaching forty, Nigel Marsh's life seems almost perfect: he has moved with his family from the UK to Sydney and runs the Australian office of a leading advertising agency. However, he is also stressed, overweight and struggling to balance a career, a marriage and the demands of four small children. But everything changes when he loses his job. After the initial shock of redundancy, Marsh decides to embrace life outside the office and reconnect with his family. FAT, FORTY AND FIRED is the hilarious, insightful and deeply moving account of his 'gap year' at home, as he rediscovers fatherhood, loses twenty kilograms, kicks his drinking habit, trains for an ocean swim race and generally gets his house in order. FAT, FORTY AND FIRED is a story for anyone who has dreamed about leaving the rat race behind and living a more meaningful life.

About the Author:

Nigel Marsh was born in Plymouth. Five years later he was sent to boarding school. He has spent the 35 years since thinking of ways of gaining attention and affirmation of his parents. The CEO of communications group Leo Burnett Australia, he lives in Bronte with his wife and four children.

Review:

" "This is the touching and laugh-out-loud funny story of a man who embarked on a life-changing odyssey without the slightest clue about what to expect ... A very funny but also enlightening and inspiring, memoir." -- Booklist

"Funny book that reads quickly but man does it hit home ... Bottom line, a book fathers really need to read." -- thefatherlife.com

"If there is any flaw to this book, it is that Marsh repeatedly makes the reader laugh out loud and want to read paragraphs at length to any nearby willing listener. We'll stifle an urge to quote yet another story and say simply get a copy of the book." -- Shelf Awareness

"When a business misadventure offers Marsh the opportunity to take a hiatus from work, he expects to spend some time relaxing with his wife and four young children, rediscovering his family after years as a CEO in Australia. He didn’t count on rediscovering himself. This is the touching and laugh-out-loud funny story of a man who embarked on a life-changing odyssey without the slightest clue about what to expect. The book has plenty of the usual comic episodes (see Dad try to get his kids to school on time! Watch as his daughter embarrasses him in front of the foxy gym instructor!), but it also tackles some serious issues. In order to avoid having his dream of "dropping out" become a nightmare, Marsh and his family not only had to adjust to a reduced standard of living but also had to learn how to balance the sudden abundance of "free time" with a seemingly endless list of new things to learn. A very funny but also enlightening and inspiring memoir." -- David Pitt, Booklist
