5.0 out of 5 stars Thought-provoking and frequently hilarious autobiography, 29 Aug. 2008
This review is from: Manicdotes: There's Madness in His Method (Paperback)
Manicdotes covers topics ranging from the banking system (topical at the moment), the jet-set / executive lifestyle and celebrity to mental illness. The reader encounters celebrities including George Best and the ex-MI5 'whistleblower' David Shayler, with the setting of the opening chapter moving from the House of Lords to Stringfellows - needless to say, there are a few beautiful women thrown into the mix. Throughout the various twists and turns, the author tells his story with great candour and the book moves seemlessly from moments of despair to triumph against ill-health, tragedy and powerful forces such as corporate financial and business organisations. The author uses his powerful creative mind to set up a successful advertising agency, though he later goes from riches to rags through some cruel twists of fate. For the more rebellious reader there are some good lessons in direct action, which have forced some of powerful actors to change their ways.

The book reads really well and each chapter is a self-contained story which can be read in bite-sized 15-20 minute chunks, whilst there are some amusing pictures like nick the scapegoat - you'll have to read it to understand...
