Like most good reads this one is about people. Its about their hopes and dreams, victories and failures. It looks closely at the difference between what people say and what they do and why that is important. It provides some rare insights into human behaviour and how trust works. George sees people at their worst and at their best and with humour and empathy relates his experiences from a buzzing inner city London to the countryside and then to Africa. In an age where "respectable" institutions spend billions "helping" people by creating debt it is useful to have an independent voice take us through the jungle and call a spade a shovel. The book provides a rare insider account into the world of investment and entrepreneurship, from someone who has been around the block and has stories to tell.
