In a nutshell, I used to be a venture capitalist, a job I loved. After a few years I realised that the world wasn’t working as we all thought it should and I felt that people at the top, bankers like me for instance, were in a position to make it more humane, equitable and positive. So I went to the countryside with my family, grew vegetables and tried to find answers. I was helped by Pam and many friends and people I didn’t even know, thankfully.
Many of the answers are in the book. They came from lots of other people and there are many references and links which you can explore. I hope Common Sense will help you live, work and play more happily.
There’s a spiel about my professional background on Linkedin here.
