Book Description

Cape Town, South Africa to arriving penniless on the streets of Copenhagen. Throughout the book he talks about his constant and sometimes extreme obsession with drugs and alcohol to which he always succumbed, even when his life, both business and personal, was going well. It was this that ensured that his early business successes, together with virtually all his relationships with women, were destined to fail. His substance abuse also played a major role in his seeking jobs that gave an outlet to the aggression that characterised these years resulting in being a witness, if not a participant, in extremely violent events.

The constant theme in this book, and indeed in the second in the series, is the important role played by golf in lifting the writer out of despair at pivotal moments. Playing golf demanded a discipline that diverted his attention from the destructive hedonism which characterised his daily life and without this diversion, the downward trajectory of his life would no doubt have continued unabated with potentially devastating consequences for him and those around him. The second book in the series, Pharmaceuticals to Fairways, deals with the later period where he desperately seeks to recover from his drug and alcohol dependency, together with the attendant periods of deep, often suicidal periods of depression. It will serve as an inspiration to those who are, or have been, on the same journey from despair, showing that even at the darkest times, circumstances, and more importantly individuals, can help turn things around ending in a series of events that could not have been imagined only a few years previously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping read. 27 May 2014
I could not put these books down! The real life story of "Cal Capone", following his life over the decades and numerous countries. The highs and lows of drug abuse, success and failures in his personal and business life and how he works through it all to come out at the other end. Sad, funny and sometimes a little scary, his life has been a rollercoaster of a ride. A trilogy that will make you think!
