A provocative, life-affirming manifesto, which reimagines the work-life balance and inspires us all to bravely embrace the new life-love-work continuum.
Michael Tobin is an entrepreneur, businessman and philanthropist who is an acknowledged authority on leadership, management techniques and business innovation. The Evening Standard has called his story a life-affirming rags-to-riches tale. As CEO of TelecityGroup, he took the company into the FTSE250 and increased its market cap from a few million to .1.6 billion. He has won multiple business awards including Entrepreneur and Outstanding Leader of the Year, was nominated as Business Leader of the Year in the National Business Awards and received the OBE for 'Services to the Digital Economy.' He is active in many charities, including Action for Children, British Asian Trust and the Duke of Edinburgh's Award: in 2016 he completed 40 marathons in 40 days to raise funds for The Prince's Trust. He is the author of Forget Strategy. Get Results. After working abroad for several years, Michael now lives in Bermondsey, London, a mere stone's throw away from his birthplace.
A clever, complex analysis of the theory of incremental

Courageous and honest in bringing to the surface the things that people don't want to talk about, but that are in everyone's heart, soul and mind. This book is a fantastic journey through life, combining practical business insights with personal anecdotes: it gives you the opportunity to put yourself in Mike's shoes and reflect on your own life, work, family and society. * Carlos Hornstein, Associate Dean, London Business School *
When it comes to using technology, do you control it, or does it control you? This book addresses the challenge every executive faces most days - how to balance family and business with the ever-increasing demands of a 24/7 technology-driven society. You may not agree with everything that Michael Tobin recommends. In fact, you may even disagree with much of it, but this book will certainly make you stop and think about how you currently deal with these challenges and how you can control and benefit from technological innovation in all aspects of your life. * Stephen Murphy, DJO Global *
An inspirational read. Michael proves no challenge is ever too big. If you want something, you can achieve it - if you're prepared to listen, learn and work hard. * Alec Stewart OBE, Director of Cricket, Surrey CCC *
Live, Love, Work, Prosper is a groundbreaking book which offers a reality check for us all. Mike brings his fascinating experiences to life with inspiration, provocation and loads of fresh ideas. Ultimately, we all want to live as good a life as possible, but often we have our heads down, the years roll by and we lose our way. This book shows how to refocus, refresh and rediscover a clear vision of what we really want and how to make our lives as good as they can be. A revelation. * Gordon McAlpine, entrepreneur, mentor and author of 'Scale Up Millionaire' *
