As a small business owner Brad has suffered all of the worries, challenges and indignities of launching a business (in massive personal debt and having to deliver pizzas in the early days).

Brad knows what it's like and tells it how it is.

Not as thick as he looks, Brad was told "It'll never work" and has answered his critics in the best possible way - by proving them wrong and spearheading the fastest growing business breakfast network, 4Networking, who run over 5,000 joined up networking events across the UK each year! Oh yea and they now have groups opening in Australia.

Next stop, all around the world.

He's generally regarded as the UK's #1 Motivational Business Speaker and is the author of three books so far, all of which are "self help/biz books for people who don't like self help/biz books", his unique approach to business, life is also found in his writing, his books are written with a raw honesty, the likes of which most authors would be unwilling to share.

Life. Business. Just Got Easier [2013] Is his latest.

A book which he believes will help the reader change their Life, Business, Direction, Thinking... All four? Maybe.

Get Off Your Arse [2009] - is Brad's must-read inspirational story of how he went from his boxroom to the boardroom as MD of 4Networking. With over 200 rave reviews on Amazon, averaging 4.7 out of 5, this was the publishing sensation of the year.

Get Off Your Arse Too [2011] - Brad Burton is back, sharing his unique and raw look at life/business and how everything happens for a reason, even the s**tty stuff... GOYA2, repeated the success of the first book.

The key thing about all of Brad's books that makes them different from other business books is that unlike some cool rich American who went to college and was brought up in a nice middle class background Brad comes at things from a different angle. None of this everything is great if you do this that or the other crap, he tells it as it is, business is bloody hard. It's good to read that he's still finding things challenging and he doesn't sugar coat the truth. What he does do in his books is tell it how it really is, warts and all!. So if you want to read a business book that has some truth to it and can help get you out of a rut, then get Brads books, all of them. One of my favourite passages in Life.Business.Just got easier. is to do with a fighter pilot not ejecting from his multi million pound plane as it crashes to the ground until the last moment. A few months ago I had an easy choice to take a high paid job with a Financial Adviser firm and avoid all those pesky business decisions such as marketing and compliance paper work. It's good to know that my parachute wasn't deployed and now things are heading in the right direction, in part I have to say to reading Brads books and taking part in 4N. So buy it read it and enjoy! - See more at: [...]

It has taken me several months to read it ( I am a slow reader) but I really enjoy Brad's honesty and humour. If you are in business you should read this book just to take a check up on what you are doing?

3.0 out of 5 stars entertaining, inspirational, anecdotal 18 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought the book was entertaining and had a few gems to take home. The author's writing style was engaging, easy to read and humorous at times, so I enjoyed it from that perspective. However from the number of 5-star reviews, I was expecting a bit more meat and structure, so I was disappointed in this area. The book felt repetitive around a few generalised themes eg. Taking control of your life, find meaning beyond money, take courage, don't give up despite set backs, etc. The author has a way in putting things across with punch to make reading fun at times. However it also felt like reading a compilation of witty tweats at other times. I felt the book can be be condensed into a few chapters as a prologue to a main text, which left me wanting. The book may be inspirational to someone who feels discouraged and helpless. However the comments are quite generalised and anecdotal, so it leaves the reader to figure things out themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 29 April 2014
This is a real down to earth, straight talking book by a real down to earth straight talking guy who "get's it". We all loose focus from time to time, especially when self employed we all get deceived by people in business too. When this happened to me recently, I read the book for a second time and it really helped. If you are serious about business buy it, buy it now. Don't delay like I did (you will see in the book)
Thank you Brad

5.0 out of 5 stars A Monster of a Kick Up the Arse!! 12 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Home truths, motivation, facts, experiences, knowledge, motivation, a workbook, inspirational and oh yeah...motivational. This book, is the first ever book i've read cover to cover (well on a Kindle). I'm 36. I've tried reading before, but i haven't got the attention span to follow it through. I finished this book, in 3 days!! Which for me is monumental. I just couldn't put it down. If you own, or want to set up your own business. If you've been in business for 20 years. Or you just want to get the most out of your life and your job. This book is for you. BRILLIANT. And if you ever get the chance to attend one of Brads Talks, or see him 4Sighting at 4Networking...DO IT!!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a business book. 3 April 2014
Where to begin? A solid and inspiring read throughout.

During this book Brad cleverly demonstrates his straight foreward attitude, no nonsense approach to business and life in general. Each chapter leaves you feeling more positive and empowered than the last (I read it in two days).
A true insight as to what i believe is the right way for any self respecting man (both in business AND life) to cunduct himself. Straight talking and most of all speaking sense.
Common sense these days is a rarity and this book gives you hope that there are people out there just like me and you, people who have gone against the odds and made their life exactly the way they want it to be.
This book will give you the courage to do exactly that, and then some.
In short, if you're looking for huge motivation or even small steps to help get you going in whatever direction you choose, this book has it all.
Thank you Brad for your honesty and not conforming!
