This very readable book continues to gain 5-star ratings and outstanding reviews from its readers .Many claim it is so interesing that it is impossible to put down. It plots the journey of a boy born into abject poverty at the start of the second world war. Bombed, evacuated, taught in a language he did not understand; he had little or no prospect of a happy and fulfilling life yet he lived life to the full. Played cricket against the Dutch national side, and the Australian state players touring side, played non-league football, but married disasterously leaving him with just the clothes he stood up in. It was then that he found his forte in life was in financial management. He rose up the management ranks to a level where he came to be described as `the world`s leading exponent of Sweating the Assets`. He was to work hugely successfully with more than 300 multi-national companies in many parts of the world. His early battles as he rose in management give a fascinating insight to the character of the man. However it is his time as a street urchin in the East-end of London playing in the bombed out houses and the horse-drawn barges that melts the heart of most readers.
