What if there was a simple idea that could transform the lives of workers, employers, the economy, our society, and our environment?
More and more employers are switching to a four-day week, leaving workers happier and economies healthier.
In the UK we work some of the longest hours in Europe, staggering home on a Friday evening stressed out and tired out.
Written by the director of the UK's 4 Day Week campaign, this handbook shows how all that can change for the better.
Using real-life case studies, it shows the positive impact of everyone working one day less a week for the same pay:“Simple, effective, efficient - the best guide to increasing your, and most other adults’, leisure time by 50% - with no serious downside" - Professor Danny Dorling, University of Oxford

It’s a handbook to the future of work.” - John McDonnell MP, former Shadow Chancellor"Joe brings together the combined experiences of so many businesses in this book. Reading this will help save people a lot of time and money when moving to a four-day week. A must-read for anyone considering joining the four-day week revolution!" - Claire Daniels, CEO of Trio Media"A four-day working week is long overdue and this book provides a crucial roadmap.
