Best-seller is back

Wilmslow Express - - NEWS - Paul Brit­ton

AN ac­claimed au­thor is cel­e­brat­ing the 10th an­niver­sary of his unique mo­ti­va­tional book.

Paul McGee, from Sale, is an in­ter­na­tional speaker and per­for­mance coach with a sim­ple mes­sage - shut up, move on.

That is the ti­tle of his in­ter­na­tional best-seller S.U.M.O., which has sold more than 60,000 copies in the UK alone and is now be­ing re-re­leased 10 years on. Paul, 50, tours the world giv­ing pre­sen­ta­tions and has ad­dressed pri­vate and public sec­tor in­dus­tries, schools and coun­cils across Greater Manch­ester

He has worked with Greater Manch­ester Po­lice and also works in the player care and sup­port depart­ment at Manch­ester City, of­fer­ing one-toone help to star foot­ballers as a player and staff per­for­mance coach.

Paul, a psy­chol­ogy grad­u­ate and for­mer pupil at Sale Boys’ Gram­mar School, said: “The book is just very down to earth, as Mancunians are. We are not pre­ten­tious but prac­ti­cal. It’s aimed at any­body who thinks, ‘I have had a few chal­lenges in life and I want to im­prove’. It can be for chief ex­ec­u­tives to teenagers.”

The book, pub­lished in 2005, stemmed from a dif­fi­cult pe­riod in Paul’s life. He lost his job in the 1980s and de­vel­oped an in­ter­est in per­sonal devel­op­ment.

He said: “It knocked Alan Sugar off top spot and be­came a best-seller in the UK, Australia and Sin­ga­pore.”
