Customer Review

on 2 December 2012
As a fan of David Nobbs' books, I have read nearly all of them over the years and feel that this one ranks amongst his very best. It is extremely well written and contains great insight and wit throughout. Although Sir Gordon has worshipped false gods during his life, especially money, it is difficult not to feel a degree of sympathy towards him as his self-critical side comes steadily to the fore. Although there is much humour throughout, the story line is particularly relevant today, and provides a salutary lesson about the consequences of the pursuit of material gain without regard for the effects on others. I wholeheartedly recommend this book; it is highly entertaining yet most thought provoking - another excellent composition from David Nobbs.
