Publisher's Synopsis

What happens when a grocer's boy moves from the saddle of his delivery bike to an executive's chair? As the 1970s dawned, Robert Murray was on the way up - newly appointed to a senior role in one of Scotland's most respected grocery distribution businesses. However, fate would have more than a few surprises in store for the man who had worked his way up from humble beginnings in grocery delivery on rural Tayside to the top level of corporate decision-making. But it wasn't all about the company boardroom; Robert's life was full of incidents and surprises during these unpredictable decades of his career, which saw his young family grow and new friendships forged. Time and again, he discovered that the importance of professional camaraderie was just as vital as meeting the needs of the increasingly-demanding consumer.
