Women such as: Martha Lane Fox, founder,; Newsnight presenter Kirsty Wark; Radio 1 DJ Annie Nightingale; pottery designer Emma Bridgewater and novelist Hilary Mantel.

Listening to the stories of these women Nadia and Emily noticed an exciting pattern, a way of living and tackling the world that produces results. Each chapter contains a collection of these inspiring stories, followed by a summary of the wise and accessible advice offered. As well as ‘Top Tips’ from experts – how to find your passion/think innovatively/shift career/dress with confidence/ask for a pay rise/write a CV/get organised etc – and ‘Try This’ suggestions to enable readers to take action immediately.

About the authors: Nadia started out as the world’s worst trainee accountant and got through jobs as fast as new shoes and Emily used to work in TV but really wanted to pursue a writing career. They wanted to change their own lives and knew plenty of other women who did too, but felt there was nowhere for them to go to get the inspiration, motivation and support they needed. So, one night in the pub, More To Life Than Shoeswas born!
