Book Description

14 Jun 2013
What would you do if you thought you would have to work - and make your own money - forever? You probably will. Because, most likely your pension will barely feed a mouse and your knight in shining armour may not materialise. Women are going to have to redefine work to fit with long, varied lives. We will have to create our own security. Fortunately, we're well equipped to do just that. We're flexible, capable and more multi-talented than we know. We just need to learn how to unearth and exploit our talents, how to succeed in the changing world of work and how to make new work - and get paid - when we need it. More than ever, we're surrounded by sex: on the TV, the Internet, at the movies, in magazines, on a billboard near you. We swim in a sea of sexual images, words and references. And we are more in control of our sex lives and sexual pleasure than ever before. We know how to call the shots in sex. So what if you could use the language of sex to inspire you to create a range of work you'll love for a lifetime that will also make you happy, secure and independent? The Kama Sutra of Work will open your eyes to the possibilities of great work that you've never thought of. From 'Oral' to 'Happy Endings', work (and sex) will never seem quite the same again.

About the Author

Avril Millar has been, and is, many things - an engineer, teacher, businesswoman, mentor, writer, speaker, turnaround expert, non-executive director and chairwoman. She has lived, and continues to live, the life and work she writes about here. With five different careers under her belt already, she anticipates a few more before they nail the lid down. She is the mother of a grown-up son and daughter, a besotted grandmother of two and the proud owner of a bus pass. And she still doesn't know what to do if she ever grows up. But she's excited about the possibilities...

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny, direct and enlightening. A wonderful read. 12 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I stumbled upon this title when searching a closely related topic, but it proved to be a very pleasant mistake on my part. Being a man, work and sex dominate my day to day life, even though in a Utopian world what I am getting of each would be very different.

You may think the book is aimed primarily at women, but it's just as enjoyable and enlightening for men. A lot of the principles are just as applicable to our own professional lives. As for those that aren't, they at least arm us with some greater knowledge of how the female mind works, which is no bad thing.

It's direct, succinct and each chapter comes with a bit-sized 'sutra' at the end. It's less self-help, more self-enlightenment written in a unique and engaging style and has set me upon the road to getting more of both.

If you know you want to create value, create work and have a more playful and fulfilling life, this book is for you. But don't expect a wishy-washy, life is perfect, all-will-just-come-your-way approach, or for that matter dont' expect the usual 'the cards are stacked against you because you are a woman'. There's no time for that in this book. This is a hilarious read that mixes wisdom and self-awareness into a recipe of hard word, tough love and much needed light heartedness on the issues of woman, work, sex and getting down to business. It's hard to not try and weave some of the clever analogies of sex and work into this review as you soon realize that everything is connected and this book shows you why and how to use that fact and your own assets to your advantage. This book is definitely worth your time; suggest reading it with wine and friends. I'm still laughing as I write this...

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read 23 Jan 2014
This is an entertaining, inspiring book intelligently written. I don't usually go for self help books but this surpasses the norm. Written in a format that is witty while delivering a helpful and meaningful message. Highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes, yes, yes! 9 Sep 2013
An honest and amusing take on the world we work in, delivered in a digestible and uplifting way. A little voice of conscience to remind us that we can all up our game and fulfill our potential, wherever it may lay. A great read and I love the Sutras at the end of each chapter, that provide a salient reminder of how we can be proactive in our endeavors. I'm sure even the most intelligent and assertive of women (and men) will take something they can use from this book. After all, this isn't a self help book, it's a help yourself book and it's all there for the taking...and the giving.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Bible 30 Aug 2013
This book is a breath of fresh air!!
Fun, humorous and yet honest this book has given me the inspiration and drive I needed to push myself further in both my working and sex life!
Live is far too short to have regrets to think what could have been.
After reading this book I will be posting the Sutras around my house and will be most certainly recommending this book to all my family and friends.
