About the Book

This is the story of life. It is about love and relationships; about the importance of family; about how real life and human emotions invariably mess each of these up. It looks at death, divorce and dating; losing loved ones; family feuds and other intertwined issues; grief and stress and how we seek to cope (or spectacularly fail to do so) with all that fate and fortune throws at us on our journey through life. It is a series of personal anecdotes intertwined with the author’s view of the world, both then as it happened and especially now he is older and hopefully much wiser. It is written with the benefit of hindsight. If he had had such clarity and understanding at the time, much of it would never have happened. But he didn’t. As we all know: “To be old and wise, you must first be young and stupid”

Sadly, his marriage eventually broke down and 50! The Life, Loves & Psyche of a Male Mid-Life Crisis: Volume 1 - The Journey explores many of the issues involved both at the time and in the build-up; it explores the male psyche and especially the phenomenon of his mid-life crisis (including his wild party lifestyle); shows how he always strove to be a good Dad to his boys, whilst still balancing work and his personal life – and illustrates how it was all a very tricky juggling act at times!
