How to Work Without Losing Your Mind: A Realistic Guide to the Hell of Modern Work (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


We're told that women today have never had it so good, yet millennial women are of the brokest generation, they're burning out and in danger of giving it all up.

How to Work Without Losing Your Mind is a painfully honest, hilarious and relatable guide to surviving the hell of the nine to five. It will help you navigate the real, messy, stressful and sometimes bizarre side of work that everyone experiences but no one talks about.

Drawing on her time working in both giant corporations and scrappy startups, Cate Sevilla will be your guide through every shitstorm you'll ever face, whether you're:

- feeling overwhelmed by your workload

- trying to get out of a job you hate

- battling a boss who seems determined to keep you down

- struggling to stay motivated

- or bouncing back from failure or being fired

How to Work Without Losing Your Mind will replace the G&T at the end of your day. It'll be your tonic to a long, hard working week, where you've cried in the office loos and are wondering what to do next.

Cate Sevilla has led and managed editorial teams for some of the world's largest media and tech companies - including Google, BuzzFeed and Microsoft. She was a founding member of BuzzFeed UK and later became editor-in-chief at The Pool, at the helm when the company collapsed. Cate is the co-host of Sali Hughes' monthly show on Soho Radio. She is launching a podcast to accompany the publication of her debut book. Born in California, Cate is American with Filipino heritage, and is based in London.
