Life’s a Banquet is the unofficial but essential ‘guide book’ to negotiating your way through life – through education, family life and business, to relationships, marriage, failure and rejection.
Aged 21, Robin Bennett was set to become a cavalry officer and aged 21 and a half, he found himself working as an assistant grave digger in South London – wondering where it had all gone wrong.
Determined to succeed, he went on and founded The Bennett Group, aged 23, and since then has gone on to start and run over a dozen successful businesses in a variety of areas from dog-sitting to cigars, translation to home tuition. In 2003, Robin was recognised in Who’s Who as one of the UK’s most successful business initiators. Catapulting readers through his colourful life and career, Robin Bennett’s memoir is an inspiring tale.
Today is my stop on the Life’s A Banquet blog tour. Many thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the chance to read and review.
My thoughts – This is a really interesting book, Robin Bennett had a life path laid out for him but life didn’t stick to the script.
The book follows him through his life, as he defines a new path for himself. I would say the message he is trying to getting across in the book, is that you are never as stuck as you think you are. Throughout the book he imparts his wisdom, and his advice on dealing with situations.
