This startlingly honest and original book is an indispensable guide to exceeding your own limitations and making great things for their own sake, out of love.

Interspersed with the story of making the board – the intricate craft he had to learn, and the clarity of mind that came with that challenge – are reflections on the last six years; the obstacles, rewards and realisations he encountered while starting and then running a successful and disruptive publishing company; Unbound.

He came to us at a time when he felt he had reached the limit of his development as a person and as a leader: he had to find a way to push beyond his preconception of what he could do.
