Book Review















 
Jeff Pearce was born in the slums of Liverpool in 1953, and from the moment he could walk he worked with his mother selling secondhand clothes on a market stall. Leaving school at the age of fourteen, unable to read or write , he embarked on an amazing journey that would see him make and lose millions in the rag trade before eventually winning the highest accolade the fashion business had to offer. He is now retired and lives on a small farm in Cheshire, with his wife Gina, two ancient Argentinian polo ponies, Susie the dog and Daisy the cat.
 
He is currently working his way through a list of must-do's before he gets too old. These include writing a sequel to 'A Pocketful of Holes and Dreams', as well as a musical based upon his life.
 
Jeff is well known as being a skilled raconteur, engaging his audiences with his honesty and humour, and drawing them in to his world. He has made numerous appearances on national radio and television, as well as having built up a highly successful reputation as both a public and motivational speaker, conducting seminars at schools, universities as well as other professional organisations and large corporates.
