I was born in 1947 to a mother from Barnsley and a father from Essex. I have three great loves in my life: Barnsley FC, Yorkshire County Cricket Club, and my wonderful wife. My wife is my rock; Yorkshire CCC are my summertime passion; the Super Reds break my heart year after year - but I wouldn't swap them for any other team in the world.
I have tried to look at the world of business through the gaze of a mixture of reality, humour, and on occasions, sheer disbelief. Every word and every event documented is the absolute truth. If you enjoy listening to this book half as much as I enjoyed writing it, then I will have achieved more than I could ever have hoped for.
