“What To Do When You Become The Boss” is about to come out in a revised edition. The book has now sold over 40,000 copies worldwide and been published in Australia, UK, India, China and North America, so I’m quite excited.

- Remote and Virtual Teams
It’s expected to be ready for publication in Australia by the end of May and other countries shortly after that.
