This is the story of Chris Pownall’s life beginning from early childhood to retirement. Chris’ autobiography is unique because he tells his story with a slant towards the more hilarious side of his life. Chris has always had a reputation for being there when things were going wrong–but it’s nothing to do with him really! His former work colleagues will bear witness to situations involving freak weather conditions and disrupted travelling arrangements. His sense of humour has seen him through many difficult situations–which he managed to salvage with wit and discretion (Even if he says so himself). Chris enjoys humour and receives great satisfaction in giving others a reason to laugh. His fifty years of continuous employment gave him great fulfilment and provided amazing opportunities for travel and experience of many industries and cultures which he shares in this account. Chris has been privileged to work with some highly capable and interesting people; not all are referred to in this book but this autobiography focuses upon those with whom Chris worked more closely and had the most fun. Life has been full of surprises and opportunities for Chris, and when times were tough, he held on tight and went with the flow with a great sense of humour in tow. Despite all the self-effacing humour, the author has a serious side which has driven his search for knowledge at the forefront of sealing technology. His passion was technical sales and would not have chosen any other profession. As you read these stories the author hopes that these yarns no matter how unbelievable some may seem, will not cause offence, as they are not intended to, but will bring a smile to your face as you share in the humour of his hilarious and not so hilarious past!

About the author
I am a 68-year-old mechanical engineer having had a 50-year career, culminating in the role of 'Industrial Marketing Director'. Following my retirement, I began writing non-fiction biographical works under the banner of ‘Amazing-Life-Stories’. I have been extremely fortunate in family life, with a loving wife, and two remarkable children. Humour has played an important part in my life although there has also been some sadness, which is reflected in my third book about my son Robert. My interest in writing really began as a marketing director, when I was required to produce strategic marketing plans for many countries including India, China, USA & South Africa. My ambition now is to write a novel, but before then, I have one more non-fiction book to complete. My wife and I enjoy global travel, but most of the time, I am available for interviews and promotional work.
