Why new? Why bold?

My book, The Gig Mindset Advantage is out in May.  A long  gestation – over two years of research, interviews, thinking, writing and interaction with my publisher. But it’s all worth it!

You can see what early readers say about it, and I look forward to your comments once you’ve read it.

I have started a podcast called Bold New Breed. You can see more about it here and discover the five episodes already live. I’ll be talking about how gig mindsetters are bringing change to the workplace and I’ll also interviewing people around the world to learn about their own experiences. If you have a story to share, get in touch.

You can subscribe on all major directories: Apple, Spotify, Google, Amazon Music, Stitcher and others.

Here’s an overview of the chapters in the book and the topics I’ll be covering. You read the chart from bottom to top!

There are also case studies that I call Stories from the Future.

The Gig Mindset Advantage will be available on Amazon and other online book stores as of 11 May in North America for hardback and e-book worldwide, and as of the 27th for hardback in other countries.  I hope you’ll pick it up, and if you do, please do get in touch and let me know what you think.

What I’m reading these days

I discover two anthologies on Amazon last week and bought them both at 99 centimes each. (Kindle). They will last me months! They say there are 13,166 pages! In spite of the volume, the quality on my iPad Kindle is perfect.

I started with volume 2 that includes full works from these authors. They are obviously works where the copyright has expired or been put into the public domain. I’m catching up on a lot of reading I should have done way back in the past!

I’m currently reading Main Street by Sinclair Lewis.

It’s like visiting the small town in Nebraska where my grandparents lived.

FYI the authors in volume 2 include: Lewis Carroll, Mark Twain, Jules Verne, Oscar Wilde, Arthur Conan Doyle, Louisa May Alcott, Jane Austen, G. K. Chesterton, Charles Dickens, Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Alexandre Dumas, F. Scott Fitzgerald, E. M Forster, Thomas Hardy, Hermann Hesse, James Joyce, Jack London, H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allan Poe, Marcel Proust, William Shakespeare, Robert Louis Stevenson, H. G. Wells, Virginia Woolf, Rudyard Kipling, D. H. Lawrence, Thomas Mann, William Somerset Maugham, Herman Melville, George Sand, Mary Shelley, Walter Scott, Leo Tolstoy, and others.
