This book is dedicated to Graham. For breakfast with a glass of
Fundador, for talk of underground houses, for his handbrake turns . . . For
his eternal optimism and unflagging sense of humour, for his courage and
his strength . . . And, most of all, for epitomising the entrepreneurial spirit.
Half of the author’s royalties for this book will go to the Oxford
Radcliffe Hospitals Charitable Funds (registered charity number
1057295), a charity which enhances facilities, services and research
for partients and staff at one of Europe’s largest academic acute
care trusts. Major initiatives include the new Oxford Cancer
Centre. I encourage my readers to join me in supporting this
important cause. One in three of us will suffer from some
form of cancer in out lives. Donations can be made online at
