Waterstones Says

Putting the conflicting demands of modern work culture and self-care mantras under the microscope, Grace Beverley offers a refreshing and practical take on motivation and productivity.

We all know the pressure of feeling like we should be grinding 24/7 while simultaneously being told that we should 'just relax' and take care of ourselves, like we somehow have to decide between success and sanity. It's a seemingly impossible choice, and one that doesn't reflect the complex working world we find ourselves in.

In Working Hard, Hardly Working, entrepreneur and self-proclaimed 'lazy workaholic' Grace Beverley confronts this unrealistic and unnecessary split, and offers a fresh take on how to navigate modern life. Full of practical advice for helping you focus when you're finding it hard to get stuff done and for stepping back when you're on the edge of burnout, Working Hard, Hardly Working provides a productivity blueprint for a new generation. Insightful, curious and refreshingly honest, it will make you reflect on what you want from your life and work - and then help you chart a path to get there.

And it's not always healthy. - The Times

A new blueprint for our current work environment ... Beverley's book investigates what it means to truly work hard and why we feel that unless we're up working till 2 a.m. and not getting enough sleep, we're not working hard enough. - Pop Sugar
