Sir Tim Waterstone  The Face Pressed Against A Window - A Memoir

Tim Waterstone is one of Britain's most celebrated business leaders, having built the Waterstones' empire that started with one small bookshop in 1982. In this charming and evocative memoir, he recalls the childhood experiences that led him to become an entrepreneur and outlines the business philosophy that allowed Waterstones to dominate the bookselling business throughout the country. From his formative years in a small town in rural England at the end of the Second World War, to the troubled relationship he had with his father, and  the epiphany he had while studying at Cambridge, this is the story of how one man became a familiar name in every high street.

Sir Tim Waterstone will be in conversation.

This Year's Events

I thought the event had a really good feel to it - and people couldn't have been friendlier and more welcoming. Good luck with future events.

Thanks for the invitation to Dorchester- most enjoyable (and an appreciative audience) with the added bonus of meeting Lynne Truss!

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.
