Nigel Marsh : from Overworked and Underlaid to work-life balance nirvana

Marsh is a British expatriate living in Sydney and working a high-profile job. Like any hard-working man with a family, he finds himself struggling with that old chestnut of work-life balance.

Marsh first recounts how he re-discovers himself in Fat, Forty & Fired and goes on to share more snippets of his life in Observations of a Very Short Man. Now in the follow-up book Overworked and Underlaid he tackles head-on the challenges of juggling his commitments to work and family.

His books are unlike the garden-variety self-help books. They are memoirs of contemporary life from a male point-of-view with ideas and inspirations distilled from personal encounters and innermost feelings. Marsh is also a guest motivational speaker. In the same vein, he punctuates his flowing narrative style with wit, humour and insights which make his books quick, easy and so enjoyable to read.
