The candid tale of one of Britain’s most outstanding contemporary philanthropists.

These pages wryly track Peter’s varied career moves, from flogging tickets for one of The Beatles first major concerts, to getting inadvertently caught up in a New York family turf war while trying to buy a treated wood company.

However, at the book’s heart is a serious mission to present a clear and galvanising case for strategic philanthropy, crucially with the founding of educational charity, The Sutton Trust.

Partly an inspiring memoir, partly an impassioned call to action for social mobility and educational equality, Peter Lampl’s autobiography describes how a self-made entrepreneur amassed a fortune and then chose to use it to help others.
