​​​​RESET: How to Restart Your Life and Get F.U. Money

The unconventional early retirement plan for midlife careerists who want to be happy.


"Unputdownable, Dave! A great, colloquial, immediate, not-stuffy-or-esoteric writing style. I found it a really enjoyable read by someone who is clearly both passionate and knowledgeable about the subject matter: from future-proofing your career by embracing digital to what to do when you die. I can't wait to see it in print."

A book everyone should devour once in their lives...

"Well-written and very easy to read, this is a book everyone should devour once in their lives (I wish I'd read it ten years ago). There are no quick fixes here but if you're willing to put the time and effort in to change your life for the better, RESET's for you. Good luck with the second edit, Dave."

I don't normally do self-help books...

"I don't normally read self-help books but I loved this one. The format is excellent: I liked the recaps and the way you used marathoning as a crossover topic; I thought the stories and quotes about running were very well-chosen and really enhanced the content. Running as a metaphor for life...who'd have thought it."

I read it through in one go without stopping...

"I read it through in one go without stopping. I love the section on meaning and vision: it made me rethink what life's purpose is all about and helped confirm some of the life decisions I have made along the way. You come across as informed, opinionated and with something only you can say. For me it's about digital, decluttering and financial independence (I wish I'd read this bit years ago)."

It was like lightbulbs going on in my head...

"It was very easy to read and I got a lot out of it. I really liked the premise of the book as I understood it; a one-stop shop with links to sources for more in-depth knowledge, and all tried and tested by an "ordinary" person. I found the financial concepts very helpful: at times it was like lightbulbs going on in my head."

The Small Print:  In case you're wondering, Scott, Jane, Paul, Neal and Robyn are some of my alpha readers: good friends, all with different skills, who were kind enough to critique my 87,000-word first draft. To get a free Kindle copy of the book I've spent the past six months on, all you need to do is sign up/subscribe to my free email list and still be on it a few days before RESET goes on sale. I will then send you a link to download your copy before it reverts to full price on launch day. I reckon this'll be in a few months' time (I am writing this in mid-March 2018).  Until then – and afterwards, if you like my stuff – you'll receive blog posts, a weekly curated newsletter and other musings. 

Oh, one last thing: you should subscribe soon. Because I may wake up one morning and take this page down, such is the idiocy of giving away pre-launch copies of RESET...for FREE!
