The Asshole Book is out now

Stoked to announce my first book, How Do Great Work Without Being An Asshole is available worldwide, published by Laurence King.

TLDR: You can order the English version on Amazon here.

This book has been almost three years in the making, inspired by tales of the infamous toxic culture in the creative industry. Long hours, chaotic workflows and egotistical colleagues are often seen as just the price you pay to produce great work. In fact, this toxic culture is the enemy of creativity, and with greater accountability and transparency in the industry—and more choice for young talent—than ever before, this unsustainable way of doing business is a ticking time bomb.

This is a straight-talking, fun read for all creatives: Director or junior, at an agency or client-side, working in design, advertising, publishing, fashion or film. Packed with anecdotes, self-analysis flowcharts, exercises and action plans for better working practices.
