Why do so many of us spend large parts of our life slogging our guts out at jobs we don't particularly like to buy things we don't particularly need? What's the point of having a family if we rarely spend time with them? Why can't our forties and fifties be up there with the best years of our lives? Is there a realistic alternative to relentlessly striving to get ahead? What are the downsides if you try? Ten years on from his international bestseller, Fat Forty and Fired, Nigel Marsh describes in his unique voice how he and his family feel and fare as he faces these and other life questions. Funny and thought-provoking, Fit, Fifty and Fired Up is a must-read for anyone who has ever despairingly wondered "Is this it?" as they face the twin challenges of raising a family and earning a living.
