This is a unique autobiography. As he enjoyed his first fifteen minutes of fame, with the publication of two acclaimed books, Andrew Godsell decided to tell the story behind their appearance. My Life sets the writing of A History of the Conservative Party and The World Cup within a rich tapestry of experiences, with engaging honesty and humour. Nostalgic recollections of childhood give way to the demands of the adult world, as a career in international finance is juggled with literary pursuits, and political activism. Andrew's passion for football is reflected in accounts of matches he attended - including the 1985 FA Cup Final and numerous World Cup ties. He recalls being interviewed by Rob Bonnet for the BBC, at the 1990 World Cup finals, plus meetings with George Best and Bobby Robson. Participation in both general and local elections lead to a controversial clash with a Conservative Member of Parliament.
