InFat Forty and Fired Nigel wrote about falling off the corporate hamster wheel and surviving. Now that hes approaching sixty he cant help but notice its been a while since he was asked onto that wheel by other hamsters. One day he reads that a graduate trainee who used to work for him in London is now a global CEO with an office on the top floor of a skyscraper in New York. Nigel by contrast is wearing a dressing gown and sitting at his writing desk in a dank storage room under his garage in Sydney. Its enough to give anyone a moment of self-doubt. Could it be that Nigels most successful days are behind him? Or is conventional success simply that conventional success? And is it possible that his happiest days lie ahead? In his memoir for his sixth decade on earth Nigel ponders ageing well sex parenting adult children his parents passing and the secret to living a happy life. By turns entertaining thought-provoking poignant and life-affirming Smart Stupid and Sixty is a celebration of the third trimester as a privilege to be enjoyed rather than a sentence to be endured.
