Now in his mid-eighties, Tom Carbery - OBE, KSG, and holder of the Lord Provost's Medal for Services to the City of Glasgow - has been telling stories for more than 70 years; here he selects fifty of his best, aiming to give rise to many a smile and chuckle, an occasional laugh, and even the odd tear. The tales reflect a journey from the Gorbals-Hutchesontown district of Glasgow, through the beginnings of a career in Local Government, almost five years serving in the R.A.F., entering the Civil Service with the Ministry of Labour, and then a move into Tertiary Education, where the author was fated to become a Senior Professor in the Business School of the University of Strathclyde. Along the way, there are insights into other areas of Tom Carbery's very active life - the inside workings of the Labour Movement, his contribution to the development of the University of Strathclyde, and appointments to quangos and other public bodies, including committees of both the Church of Scotland and the Roman Catholic Church.
