In Book One, the author wrote of the many humorous incidents in his life, from his school days in Glasgow, his apprenticeship with British Rail, his university years, and finally through the initial part of his career in the oil industry with Shell. In Book Two, he takes us firstly to Negara Brunei Darussalam in the Far East, then to The Hague, back out east to Sarawak, and finally to London to enjoy a well-earned retirement – or so he thought at the time! While the author covers some technical aspects in the book, it is written mainly as an entertaining account of a life “in oil” and to inform the general reader about the challenges faced by the oil companies, and, perhaps more importantly, by the individuals who work in the industry.
