    I wish more business books were written in this way!

    If you’re like me then books about business are not your idea of fun. In fact, before I read Freedom from Bosses Forever, I could count the number of other business books I’ve ever read on one hand and there’s a good reason for that. Oftentimes we pick up a really expensive business book that promises to revolutionise our fortunes, but ultimately don’t end up finishing it. That’s because there’s always something else that grabs our attention and, to be honest, we’re often welcome of the relief. However, the same cannot be said about Freedom from Bosses Forever. The practical advice that it offers can be easily absorbed because of the humorous way in which it’s written – something that is a rare find in the world of business. Furthermore, the book is written from the author’s personal experience. You get an enhanced sense of understanding due to the fact that Tony Robinson is talking to you based on his understanding of the subject area.

Freedom from Bosses Forever offers straightforward and to the point advice that leaves nothing open to misinterpretation. I just wish more business books were written in this way because if they were my knowledge would increase exponentially with every book that I read. (more)

    My Grandfather wrote this book of which I am extremely proud. Having read the book a number of times, I always come across parts that I somehow missed before. It's about his time in the prisoner of war camp Stalag VIIIB, where he spent 5 years of his life working in the coal mines in Upper Silesia. The subject of the book would suggest a depressing account of life as a PoW in WWII, but Arthur writes with humour and draws in the reader to want to know more about the camps and his experiences. While Arthur was still alive he worked to get his website Lamsdorf Reunited off the ground which was his way of trying to bring PoWs together. The website is now called Lamsdorf Remembered and not able to take on any more stories/pictures due to the overwhelming response from relatives of PoWs looking for information.
