Om boka

Why is it getting harder to secure a job that matches our qualifications, buy a home of our own and achieve financial stability?
Underprivileged people have always faced barriers, but people from middle-income families are increasingly more likely to slide down the social scale than climb up.
Duncan Exley, former Director of the Equality Trust, draws on expert research and real life experiences - including from an actor, a politician, a billionaire entrepreneur and a surgeon - to issue a wake-up call to break through segregated opportunity. He offers a manifesto to reboot our prospects and benefit all.
