John Singleton is one of Australia's most colourful and charismatic personalities, constantly in the headlines for his stunning business coups and extraordinary lifestyle. His public image is that of the loveable larrikin: a brash, irreverent bloke's bloke, ready to shout drinks for an entire racecourse to celebrate a big win. Yet the women in his life - and that includes an astonishing total of six wives - speak to a complex and highly sensitive man capable of great charm and tenderness.
The true story of his turbulent life, revealed for the first time in this boots-and-all biography by Gerald Stone, is both fascinating and inspiring. It stands as living proof that in an increasingly impersonal world there's still a way to achieve fame and fortune by having the courage to be yourself.
