The City Grump Rides Out is a collection of clever, acerbic and, at times, downright hilarious commentaries on the business and political landscape of the United Kingdom. Through his colourful and observant prose, the City Grump roots out some of the absurdities perpetrated by the leaders and institutions of the country.
For the past nine years, the City Grump has been turning his fire on those he believes we would be better off without in his regular column for Real Business. Now, he compiles these popular articles covering contemporary finance, politics, Europe and society in a topical book for equally grumpy readers with a cover illustrated by Britain’s most famous living cartoonist, Gerald Scarfe.
But the Grump, who trod the Square Mile for three decades as a successful fund manager is not solely negative. Through his debut book, he raises a glass to small business whose entrepreneurs are the foundation of the UK.
