Where do you sit on this scale?'An exciting, refreshing, curious read which addresses not just the future of work but how to fundamentally rethink the way we live' -EMMA GANNON, author of The Sunday Times bestseller The Multi-Hyphen Method"At a time when many of us are reconsidering our work/life balance in the long-term, it's an illuminating read." - Cosmopolitan"The Reset is a provocative guide to how we fit into an ecosystem' - The Financial Times"Uviebinene's passion about resetting how we live and work is infectious and eye-opening." - Marie Claire"This book made me stop and rethink my relationship with work.

Elizabeth challenges us all to create a new social contract with trust, purpose and community at its heart.

Where we work by design and not by default and in doing so, create a world of work that is more balanced, inclusive and better for everyone." - Helen Tupper, CEO of Amazing If and co-author of The Squiggly Careers________________Being busy isn't an IdentityPerks aren't office CultureProfit isn't all we want from BusinessLoneliness shouldn't happen in a CommunityInequality isn't inevitable in a CityWe can all shape Society From the award-winning author and Financial Times columnist Elizabeth Uviebinene, a fundamental rethink of how we work and live. Because if we're going to really benefit from the radical shift of 2020, we have to rethink how we fit into an ecosystem.

Elizabeth started with a simple desire to explore our relationship with work, and how it was impacting our lives.

It became clear if we want to reset how we work as individuals, we're going to need to reset the work culture we exist in, the businesses we work for, the communities we're a part of, the cities we live in and the society we can shape. We can't just rethink one strand of society; we need to rethink everything together. It's time for a Reset. The Reset is a short, digestible book for people who want to work better, and live better.

Elizabeth addresses our urge to work differently, to work in a way that suits more parts of our lives.

It's optimistic, positive and provocative, offering fresh perspectives on the way we live now, and a punchy idea for how we might live in the future.

So what's possible now that would have seemed impossible before?
