Rachael Stock has worked in publishing for 15 years, getting her first commissioning job at the very early age of 24. She has worked for three major publishing houses, and has commissioned books in health, lifestyle, popular psychology, personal development, sport, business and careers. Her biggest success is Rules of Work the behavioural guide to success - an international bestseller published by Prentice Hall Business (part of Pearson). She's equally proud however of another Pearson publication - the charity book Get Ahead, Give A Damn - that raised GBP30,000 to help those without a home or a job get back into work. Though she is now gamekeeper and poacher, Rachael previously resisted the urge to write a book, always suspecting it was easier to scribble all over other people's. She now knows it is.
