Publisher's Summary

John Singleton is one of Australia's most colourful and charismatic personalities, constantly in the headlines for his stunning business coups and extraordinary lifestyle. His public image is that of the loveable larrikin: a brash, irreverent bloke's bloke, ready to shout drinks for an entire racecourse to celebrate a big win. Yet the women in his life - and that includes an astonishing total of six wives - speak to a complex and highly sensitive man capable of great charm and tenderness.

The true story of his turbulent life, revealed for the first time in this boots-and-all biography by Gerald Stone, is both fascinating and inspiring. It stands as living proof that in an increasingly impersonal world there's still a way to achieve fame and fortune by having the courage to be yourself.

Critic Reviews

"He's got this uncanny knack of being able to get in sync with the average Australian." (Bob Hawke)
"He lives his life on the edge and I think maybe for all the women, that's part of the deal - the risk, the danger factor." (Belinda Green, former wife)
"Yes, I would trust him with a handshake. There are not many I would trust like that anymore." (Kerry Packer)

Great yarn.

Fantastic story of an Australian that has done so well for so long. This story flows so well I was on the end of my seat from start to finish. Clever balance of drama and fun of a bloke that lives his life at 100mph.
