Strange stories peppered with helpful hints, 23 Feb 2009
This book is good value for money. Not only do you get a thoroughly readable and fascinating autobiography of a rather unusual individual, but also practical tips on how to capture ideas and turn them into adventures, as Shed himself has done. Taking a trip into Shed's bizarre world, you will discover what it takes to break into the world of television, the novelty (often naughty!) product business, authorship, art...
The secret is simple - take Shed's recipe for idea generation, find the right people to help and add a dash of eccentricity, a heapful of bravery and a ton of perseverance. It's not for everyone, but which of us wants to be "everyone"? This book itself is one of Shed's idea experiments, so you may well end up playing a part in his strange and wonderful story.
