I Had To Go There to Get Here

A Wandering Knight's Tale


There was a lust for fame and fortune. Only then would he become the biggest pull on the planet.

But the closer he got to his fortune, the more he became disillusioned with the value of money, as he discovered a world full of greed, evil and corruption. He falls in love and realises that's what he's been looking for all his life, but there is work to do.

He is now Don Quixote, the character Cervantes saw four hundred years ago, and he must slay the evil giants before he is worthy of the fair Dulcinea. But they are many. Though Don Quixote is not alone - there have been forces guiding him, giving him strength all his life, way outside our comprehension, and they're getting stronger...

...and so is he.

"A free-flowing description of the adventures of a never-say-die Liverpool lad interposed with his philosophy of life. Extremely readable, it comes with colourful and humorous descriptions of his exploits in a seemingly insurmountable attempt to establish Kiasu as the world standard for picture frame easels." - Gary Lim, Marketing Consultant, Singapore.

I started reading the book one evening and would have carried on all night if I didn’t have work the next day. I took the book on a date to show my girlfriend and read her some of the poetry. She wants me to give her the book when I’ve finished, but I want to read it again. I’ll get her one for Christmas.

I lived near Ken for many years and we worked on a few projects together. My favourite has to be his Japanese garden. I knew Ken was an inventor, but had no idea about the rest of it. What a lad. What a life. Very interesting book – couldn’t put it down.

I took the book away on holiday with me and was hooked from the first page. I spent three hours reading it one day, and finished the book in a week. I haven’t done that since I left school.
