The Author

A classics graduate from Trinity College, Cambridge, Martin Fone had a successful career in the insurance industry. He co-authored two books on public sector risk management that were adopted by the Institute of Risk Management as their standard textbooks.

Since retiring, Martin has had the opportunity to develop his interests, mainly reading, writing, and thinking – or, as his wife puts it, locking himself away in his office for a few hours a day. In particular, he has been blogging and writing in his tongue-in-cheek, irreverent style about the quirks, idiocies, and idiosyncrasies of life, both modern and ancient. This book reflects this change in direction and follows on from his previous successful publication, “Fifty Clever Bastards.”
