It is one thing having a name or having made your name. But how does an ordinary John Smith born to a small tenant farmer of poor coal-riddled soil in unfashionable Derbyshire become a qualified accountant and work as a management consultant for the mighty Price Waterhouse? And not just at home base. We go to Singapore and India and many other places to live this story This is not a rags-to-riches tale. Rather a roller-coaster experience As many lows as highs, as many tears as laughter. Not a part life but a full one. Seven decades of change. Of rants and surprises You will be amazed. You will be swept along.
