When Prime Minister Harold MacMillan famously stated, 'You've never had it so good' , the 10-year-old Tim Albert was being miserable, stuck on a hill in a school filled with small boys. But despite an at-times unhappy start, some dreadful mistakes and a rather unpleasent illness, he came to appreciate that he had been born in a lucky place at a lucky time - and was lucky to be still alive.

 

In this idiosyncratic and perceptive journey through the second half of the twentieth century, the author combines family material with his own recollections and writings as a journalist. He drops, albeit briefly, such names as Teddy Kennedy, EM Forster, Libby Purves, Jimmy Savile and Saddam Hussein. He also witnesses such historic milestones as the post-war recovery, the drive for fairer education - and the first attacks on the NHS.

 

Tim Albert is a journalist, trainer and author of four books on medical writing. He lives in Surrey with his wife and a needy garden.
