Product description

Review

Everyone faces shock moments in their life when they are suddenly left asking themselves What the f... just happened? From political upsets like Brexit and Trump, to personal relationship trauma, to business catastrophes, these unexpected events can very easily leave us upset and unproductive. When you re starting out in business, however, your professional and personal life are inevitably intertwined, so it is more important than ever to have the resilience to bounce back from unfortunate surprises. This interesting book takes an irreverent and pragmatic look at the troubles that most people will experience at some point in their life, and aims to give you the tools to cope and respond well. It draws on scientific research into human behaviour, offering readers insights into the reasons why people often behave irrationally and providing suggestions as to how to avoid such behaviour themselves. Of course this book will not stop bad things happening to your business suppliers will go bust, markets will crash, regulations will change but it will help prevent you reacting badly if they do. --Start Your Business magazine

We all have moments in life where the rug is spectacularly pulled out from beneath us. You lose your job, you discover your child is ill or your partner leaves you - and most of us don t cope well. The author offers advice and tips for those pivotal WTF moments that happen and the strategies are interesting, funny and informative. Martin Goodyer spent 20 years as a psychologist and has also managed hotels - so he s seen a lot in his time. It s a great read - after all, you never know what might happen. --Natasha Harding, SFTW Books, The Sun newspaper

This is an interesting book. First up, it s a great cover, and that s not always a given, so good marks for that. Next is the question of if learning from other people s f@@kups is necessarily the best way to proceed. There are some useful insights, horror stories, and silly things that people did that messed up things for themselves. You can draw some useful insights from some of the things that people did, and aim to apply that wisdom to your own decisions. For some people this could be a really useful book. Personally the longer I read it, the more it felt like a slightly negative way of doing things. Goodyer does offer the caveat This is not a self-help book. The self-help bit is up to you. Here is why: self-help books are OK, but many are not great. They normally tell you to do this or that and then you ll be fine but real life isn t usually that simple and good advice is only useful if you can remember to use it. Stories, on the other hand, stick with you, and these cautionary tales could help you avoid your own WTF moments. Thing is, I begun to wonder if living by a series of don t do this or that lists might be a bit of a fearful and negative way to live. In some of the evaluations of the people who did WTF things, you did wonder if some scores were being settled in relation to the characters described too -> but maybe that s the privilege you get if you write the book! Goodyer might be right though, perhaps it takes a horror story to burn the lesson into your memory. We ve all encountered those rude, brash, horrible people too, so if this book helps to enable some of them to realise they are about to encounter their own WTF moment, then perhaps the book will have helped someone at the right time. --Simon Cocking, Irish Tech News
