It’s fun doing things slightly better and this book is about small ideas that can have a big impact.

After all, where’s the fun in being mediocre when we don’t have to be.

Steve Backley, Roger Black and Humphrey Walters combined their different performance journeys to produce a simple book of real examples, which easily adapts to any environment.

We have compiled these ideas into a book that can be read in 60 minutes.

Slip this one into your pocket or bag and read it on a train or plane journey.

Dip in and out when it suits you.
