Overview

The Author was born just post the second world war-a member of the so called 'Baby Boomer ' Generation in London .During the book he describes to us what life was like growing up in those far off , and very different ,days . Whilst at its core the Book is autobiographical , it is much more than that. It has both comedy and tragedy and is full of well researched facts on many of the events of the 50s , 60s and 70s and beyond that have touched his life and the prevailing 'Zeitgeist ' of those years .It seeks to inform in many areas. Brian is a successful businessman and entrepreneur , having been a Director of several Bank Subsidiaries and founded three companies. He shares the business lessons that came to guide him in his career. There have been hardships - he has suffered from a severe clinical depression - and the book opens with his moving and harrowing account of what this debilitating illness can be like at its most extreme.

The book goes on, in an extremely frank and honest way , to describe his hilarious early experiences as a teenager looking for sex and love , his story of his accomplished work and rugby football careers , his topsy turvy experiences of sailing , skiing and amateur dramatics , his views on marriage and fatherhood , and relationships with women in general , again providing us with both insight and humour throughout ! He discusses his strange journey from 'Born again ' Christian , to Atheism, and the forces that drove him from the one extreme to the other.

Along Brian's lifetime journey we laugh and cry with the author , who has enjoyed much success , happiness and fulfilment in his life in spite of the ever present danger of Depression .
