Will You Walk a Little Faster

Trafford Publishing, Feb 1, 2004 - Biography & Autobiography - 206 pages
0 Reviews

An unusual autobiography starts in the Yorkshire steel City of Sheffield where German bombers blew in his house windows early in the second world war. It moves to Canada where the author enforced the first Canadian Legislation dealing with misleading and deceptive trade practices following the rise of Consumerism in the seventies.

Written with a dry humour about times before the age of political correctness, you will share the experiences of an eclectic and full life--sometimes you may feel that you are actually looking over the author's shoulder.

He describes his life as at times exciting, never predictable, and seldom dull.
