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.
