This interesting and amusing book was a pleasant surprise. Peter Davidson’s pathway in life is so diverse; it certainly was a page-turner.
His portrayal of Willie Baxter, The Scots Porridge Oats man, surely one of the UK’s much-loved TV adverts, conjured up fond childhood memories.
Peter’s eloquent and comical prose takes you on a passage of intrigue and laughter.
The early chapters present the reader with a warm insight into Peter’s evolving sense of character and persona.
Mr By The Way magically juggles his roles as an actor, academic & tour guide, demonstrating how versatile one needs to be in the world of equity.
His passionate determination is evident when he also turns his wonder of exploration into a successful series of travel guides that really were ahead of the game.
Mr By The Way is a magic carpet escapade that is an inspiration for all artists and actors.
