“Spice is the variety of life.”—This is one of the book’s many “Chrissarisms” and just about sums it up. The book brings together, in the words of The Literary Consultancy, “a wealth of material.”

Described as “a sort of autobiography”, it is not just about a boy who, from humble beginnings, created one of the country’s leading car insurance businesses. It is much, much more than that. In a series of mini biographies you will meet characters like Tramlines Taylor and some of the author’s irresponsible drinking companions like Alan the Gallon and Patsy, an eclectic version of several of them.

The author’s confrontations with authority in “Gypsies” and “DA versus the FA & Others” are described in detail and his views on religion, democracy, political correctness, crime (especially paedophilia) and punishment are bound to raise a few eyebrows.

The ups and downs of Lloyds of London, the ‘We Arnott Insured’ slogan and the people involved, including the Chairman of Gretna FC during their fairy tale journey into Europe, are featured in Volume II: Accidental Millionaire.
“A huge and all-embracing account of a richly-varied life”; “Fantastic characters, of the kind we just don’t see today”; “The Chrissarisms—yes, very funny, and very charming!” —The Literary Consultancy.
