(1 Ratings)
This book reflects my personal harrowing experiences in the chainsaw logging industry, operating from Ituni, Upper Demerara River, Guyana. It is indicative of the difficulties, compounded by limited... More > resources and capital, which affect small businesses. It shows that there is more to success than the drive and resolve to succeed. The book details interactions with workers, lending institutions, lumber dealers, the Guyana Forestry Commission, politicians, and of course, the people of Ituni. The logging business made an impact on the full gamut of my emotions – joy, pain, satisfaction, disappointment and despair. The journey stretched me way beyond what I thought I was capable, but greatly shaped the way I perceived life and business subsequently. The book is filled with adventure, suspense and action. There is hardly a dull moment, making the book a lot more than logging itself. It is a perfect representation of life and living in an underdeveloped country of the world.< Less

More > successful PR consultancy of the ‘80s in Italy, and equally at ease with North American giants such as Steve Jobs and Leonard Cohen, Toni’s narrative in Biased Memoirs of a Public Relator is unusually candid: from politics to journalism, earnouts and transcontinental business deals, the personal voice of one man never fades against the background of ideologies, history, individuals’ ambitions, exotic cultures, and the rise and fall of business empires, at home as abroad. Work and personal life are tightly weaved to create a vibrant, passionate and colourful fabric; the entire point of the Biased Memoirs is not to consign to history a point of view through a professional’s ‘spin’, rather to use the narrator’s own experience to cut through it, and tell of an incredible career.< Less
