John Murray Learning buys self-made man's self-published bestseller

John Murray Learning has bought a self-published bestseller, Life Leverage, by Rob Moore.

Jonathan Shipley, commissioning editor at John Murray Learning bought world rights to Life Leverage: How to Get More Done in Less Time, Outsource Everything and Create Your Ideal Mobile Lifestyle by Rob Moore directly.

Life Leverage was self-published earlier in 2016, and, according to John Murray, sold 18,000 copies in less than three months, reached number 2 on amazon.co.uk and sold 5,500 copies on the day of launch. The book has over 500 5* reviews on Amazon.

In Life Leverage the author promises the exact philosophy, strategies and tactics needed to live a "time-rich, wealthy and meaningful life, merging your passion and profession, making more money in less time and living your ideal mobile lifestyle from anywhere in the world".

The 'Life Leverage philosophy' is based on the self-made businessman and author Moore's experience building a £10m plus a year business income from scratch by his 30s. When he found he was working so hard that for the first year of his son's life he rarely saw him, he developed the Life Leverage philosophy to keep his businesses thriving while firing himself from the office. His businesses duly kept growing, and he now travels the world, runs a business and property empire from his laptop and plays golf everyday with his young son.

John Murray Learning will publish Life Leverage on 5th May 2016 in paperback priced £9.99. The e-book edition is available now. A second book is scheduled for January 2017.

Shipley said: “I am delighted to be working with Rob Moore and publishing Life Leverage. As a self-starting success story with limitless energy, Rob personifies the kind of ambitious, creative and practical thinking we admire at John Murray Learning, and his book is full of generous and useful tips forusing the Life Leverage philosophy to emulate his success”.

Moore said: "I wrote Life Leverage as a manual to create your ideal lifestyle, living a life you love by design, merging passion & profession, vocation & vacation as one full & meaningful life. It is the vision & the details, the strategies & the systems to do what you want, when you want, where you want with who you want."
