The author Mark Anthony was born into a country market town six years prior to the start of the second world war at a time when:
Marriage was forever. Sex was portrayed at best as a part of love, at worst as vulgar. Pornography unknown as such, smoking advertised as beneficial to health with drugs virtually unheard of. High moral values were expected when brides wore white because they were virgins and not because they liked the colour. He was educated in order at a Church Primary, a Convent, a Private Preparatory School and finally a Grammar School.

His only claim to academic achievement was a good school certificate and as he later discovered an extraordinary high I.Q.

His motivation to write the book was driven by the fact that his three daughters are currently divorced and are members of the one parent family brigade so prevalent unfortunately in today's world.

He wanted to record for posterity his life until the age of 40 that was founded on these high moral values and lacked nothing in terms of fun, enduring love and fulfilment. Personal evidence that there is this other way.

His father made him promise not to deflower any maiden on his way to manhood and marriage, a promise that he did his utmost to maintain. This led to memorable scenarios. His life was full of luck, fun, frolic and tragedies as it courses through the streams of a hilarious first employment with an Auctioneers, National Service in the R.A.F., Trainee Management with a well known Retail Chain, Managerial appointments with a Unilever food manufacturer and distributor, a period with an Insurance Broker and finally his Own business. One's eyes are opened to many of the workings of those companies during the 50's and 60's.

He warns that his autobiography at times is very raunchy even erotic but trusts that his prospective readers will enjoy reading of his life as much as he enjoyed living it.

His greatest wish is for all young folk to take heart in the fact that enduring love is possible even today. Seek and ye shall find!
