Warm, friendly, familiar and very funny sums up "Rich and Famous?". Whether it's the tale of the ink-drinker, the first French kiss, or the intriguing contents of a hill-walker's survival kit, Brian Clifton through his own recollections takes you on a delightful journey through your own life. There is not a word to be missed. Here are some hilarious tales of Yorkshire schooldays in WWII, army life just after the war, and Oxford University in the early '50s. Read about tech reppin' and whiz-kidding in the chemical industry in the '50s and '60s. The highflier is shot down in 1970 and refreshes his spirit at Lancaster University in the '70s. Now is the time to start up a company to promote inventions of all kinds. Amazingly, it is still alive. Some disappointments, some sadness, but lots of laughs. Just like real life, really. Some honest and harsh self-revelations, but mainly on the upbeat. The lessons learnt can tell us all something of how to build a positive, cheerful outlook on life. The final chapter is a stimulating look at life and the possible afterlife by a scientifically trained agnostic, revealing the philosophy of a self-confessed happy man.
