Twitter's European v.p. signs with PRH

Twitter's European vice-president, Bruce Daisley, is publishing a book with Penguin Random House offering his insights for "redesign" of the world of work.

In The New Work Manifesto, Daisley will share his discoveries from conversations with leading experts about how best to make our jobs happier and more fulfilling. 

It will cover in 25 chapters "all aspects of 21st-century office life", according to PRH, wrestling with questions such as: "Are lunch breaks for wimps, or do they actually make us more productive? Is it true that you can improve team performance simply by moving the location of the kettle or coffee machine? And what is a Monk Mode Morning, and why do people swear by it?"

"The New Work Manifesto isn’t about trendy, unsubstantiated ideas; it’s about using evidence and science to help everyone improve their work," said Daisley.

World rights were bought by Nigel Wilcockson, publishing director at Random House Business Books, following a direct approach to the author who is already known for his podcast "Eat Sleep Work Repeat".

Publication in trade paperback, audio and ebook is scheduled for January 2019.
