Written with humour and insight, this informal memoir is a delightful celebration of the passions that have driven Simon Brown’s life.

Whether recalling incidents from his early years as a barrister (courageously breaking away from the family business) or as Treasury Devil, or during the later stages of his legal career (ending as a Justice of the Supreme Court) – or whether talking about his family, telling us his golfing tales, or describing his enjoyment of the Garrick and his many travels around the world – he exudes a zest and delight in what he does and an affection for those he works with and meets that is a deeply endearing characteristic.

Friendship is a constant theme, the pleasure he takes in other people. It is this extraordinary energy and enthusiasm for life that defines Simon Brown and lends this memoir its huge attraction.
