Synopsis

The author describes a career starting in a joiner's shop and concluding with an accolade from the Prime Minister for his distinguished public service. He details his engagement in the chaotic collective bargaining system of the 1960s and 70s; complex negotiations as a diplomat in Washington (also dealing with the American labour movement and meeting with civil rights leaders); playing a part in countering the UKs 1980s recession; and more than 20 years of senior positions in the NHS. This is an insider's lively view: packed with good stories - challenging, serious, somewhat indiscreet and frequently humorous.
