The common language and frameworks will help you to influence your organisation to create innovative new models and opportunities around leadership, both for yourself and your colleagues. Cases and stories from high profile business, public sector and sports professionals along side practical diagnoses, will inspire, show you how to take more personal control and determine what combination of things you really want in the second half - with the tools and techniques to make this happen. This is a practical leadership guide for anyone in management concerned with what their life, career and leadership capabilities will look like once they approach and enter what used to be the traditional 'retirement' age and move into the second half of the game. David Grayson, Director of the Doughty Centre for Corporate Responsibility at Cranfield School of Management, "I know from both the demographic data across the developed world and the personal experiences of many people that I meet socially and professionally that Julie is on to something very timely with her message."

In a stunning collaboration with Booker Prize-winning author Roddy Doyle, Roy Keane gives a brutally honest account of his last days as a player, the highs and lows of his managerial career, and his life as an outspoken ITV pundit. 'Roy Keane's book is a masterpiece . . . It may well be the finest, most incisive deconstruction of football management that the game has ever produced' Mail on Sunday 'A genuine pleasure . . . His thoughts on his players are humane, interesting, candid and never less than believable' The Times 'The best things are the small things: regretting joining Ipswich when he discovered the training kit was blue; refusing to sign Robbie Savage because his answerphone message was rubbish; being appalled that his side had listened to an Abba song before playing football' Evening Standard 'The book is brilliantly constructed, rattling along at breakneck speed . . . full of self-deprecation . . . a ruthless self-examination' Daily Telegraph
