Editorial Reviews

Review

"Reading this book will guide you in the pursuit of change but it will not make change occur. You have to do that."
CHARLIE SPEDDING, LA Olympics medallist, London Marathon winner and author of From Last to First

"A comprehensive introduction to things you didn't learn in school but should have. RESET is a complete program with enough motivation and details to make it easy to begin without being too complicated. You'll feel like doing something right now."
JACOB LUND FISKER, PhD, author, Early Retirement Extreme

"Tempted to throw in the towel and run away? Tempted by the greener grass on the other side? Well...be tempted no more...this book will actually let you "reset". It's a fun, compelling and, dare I say, tempting prescription to a different approach to life, work and play. What Matters To You is a global movement in healthcare aimed at improving experience of patients and families; this book makes you ask this question of yourself and then encourages you to do something about it. Tempted? I am..."
PROFESSOR JASON LEITCH, national clinical director, healthcare quality & improvement, Scottish Government

"Sawyer's RESET shows us how to achieve material wealth. It emphasizes discipline, sacrifice, and hard work. No argument here. However, we must also reflect on the wisdom from Benjamin Franklin's 1758 essay on The Way To Wealth: "Do not depend too much upon your own industry, and frugality, and prudence, though excellent things, for they may all be blasted without the blessing of heaven." But even with this admonition, Franklin truly understood human nature, concluding that the people heard it, approved the doctrine, and immediately practiced the contrary. My advice: approve of Sawyer's doctrine. It makes good sense."
WILLIAM D. DANKO, PhD, co-author of The Millionaire Next Door and
Richer Than A Millionaire ~ A Pathway To True Prosperity

"RESET is an incredibly detailed and comprehensive guide to planning and achieving the life you desire. But that's only true if what you desire is to work on your own terms, to achieve goals that are meaningful to you, and to move rapidly towards your financial independence."
JOHN KINGHAM, managing editor, UK Value Investor and author of The Defensive Value Investor


"Dave was like me; dashing around, time-poor and feeling a bit unfulfilled. Actually, he's probably still time-poor but only because he's taken life in hand and, in the manner of Frank Sinatra, now does things "his" way. Even better, he's knocked his pan in to write a book that shares accessible logic, real-life stories and the inspiration to freewheel out of whatever rut you may be in. Sometimes you just need a bit of a push and RESET is positively nudging. Or maybe you just want to stay doing what you are doing, the way you've always done it. Your choice."
MARJORIE CALDER, director, OceanBlue Consulting

"There is no PR spin here! A frank and honest appraisal of the challenges facing the PR industry and also the immediate future of a generation that is supposedly at its peak earning potential yet woefully unprepared for what comes next."
JIM HAWKER, co-founder, Threepipe

"As a 25-year-old GB endurance athlete who's had his fair share of injuries, I think, like Dave, that setbacks in any field should be used to propel you forward not hold you back. I found inspiring and relatable advice everywhere in RESET and recommend it to anyone with dreams who believes their best years are yet to come."
LUKE TRAYNOR, (as-yet-unsponsored) GB runner: 61:55 HM, 13:39 5K (2018 PBs)

"Hidden in plain sight within the 300 or so pages of RESET is an elegant synthesis of the latest thinking in financial independence, lifestyle design, and age-old philosophical wisdom - cunningly disguised as a breezy pep talk from your witty mate down the pub. In a world that's forever racing past us on a screen, it's a reminder of the potentially life-changing power of a book."
MONEVATOR, monevator.com

"If you feel normal in today's world - that is - less than joyful, bored, unfulfilled, overworked yet not-meeting-your-potential, trapped, or simply apathetic about your current state of affairs, David Sawyer's RESET is the refreshing splash of water you need to put yourself right. A terrific book."
CYRUS SHEPARD, founder, Zyppy

"RESET is a guidebook for life. Whatever age or stage you're at you'll find it a helping hand towards well-being, positive mental health and financial independence. It's both personal philosophy and autobiography, in which David Sawyer describes his own "reset". We're all finding our way, with varying capabilities, experiences and skill. Add RESET to your toolbox and invite David Sawyer to become your mentor."
STEPHEN WADDINGTON, partner and chief engagement officer, Ketchum

"This might just turn out to be one of the most influential books many people ever read - and most likely the most influential one any of them read over 40!"
STUART MACDONALD, entrepreneur and CEO, Seric Systems

"Most of us dream about changing things up, walking away from where we are now, and pushing a giant reset button. But most of us don't know what do next. David Sawyer's life, and new book, is a testimony to the power of restarting and pursuing the work and life that will make you happy. More than a testimony, it's also an instruction manual."
DAVID BURKUS, author of Friend of a Friend and Under New Management

"RESET is an eye-opener. It's a very well-written book about the meaning of life, about angst and the search for purpose. Whether you work in public relations or not, view this book as a guide to creating a strategic plan for the rest of your life. It's impressive. It's exhausting. Sawyer suggests he's everyman. I think he's Superman."
RICHARD BAILEY FCIPR, editor, PR Place

From the Author

This book is my creed, the truth as I believe it to be. A unique plan for midlife professionals to reset and restart their lives. I promise that after you read RESET - and carry out its recommendations - you'll be happier at work and home, better/proud at your job and have a practical financial independence/early retirement/escape plan. It won't happen overnight, but without taking drastic action such as quitting gainful employment, within a year, you will have transformed your future.
