Meet The Author

History is filled with stories of the famous crashing to earth, whether through an ill-judged statement, an overweening arrogance, a lust for power or money, or simply a stroke of bad luck. Today, more than ever, the world of the successful is littered with banana skins lying in wait for the unwary, as film stars, politicians, soldiers, scientists, business tycoons, royalty, criminals, sports idols and others make that fatal decision, gaffe or slip.

Among the 200 or so figures included in Banana Skins: The Secrets of The Slips and Screw-ups that Brought the Famous Down to Earth are Al Capone, John Lennon, Charles Stewart Parnell, Paris Hilton, Martha Stewart, Boris Becker, George Best, Oscar Wilde, Bill Clinton, Fergie , Jonathan Aitken, Guy Fawkes, Jane Fonda, Chairman Mao, Elvis Presley, Britney Spears, Stradivarius, Nick Leeson, Lord Elgin, Bernie Cornfeld, John Major, Margaret Thatcher, Imelda Marcos and Sven Goran Eriksson.
