I am a retired electronics consultant engineer. During my professional career, I spent eleven years as a researcher and lecturer at Southampton University (the Ivory Tower) and a further twenty-eight years in industry, mostly as a one-man-band consultant roving the world (the Road Warrior). These are my stories: some funny, some sad, and some just interesting.
New Printed Edition, 2020
I published this book originally as an ebook in 2013. In September 2020, I decided to republish as a paperback. In so doing, I took the opportunity to tweak the grammar, add a few more photographs, insert an appendix and an index, and add a few updates in the form of just under thirty 2020-prefixed footnotes. But the stories remained unchanged; just as true today as they were in 2013.
