Full Description

"The station where you begin your life, does not need to be your station at the end of your life. The choice is yours."

Growing up poor in wartime England, Frank Farr is an indifferent student, and once he gets into his rebellious teen years, struggles with juvenile delinquency and seems headed for trouble. But when he is presented with the opportunity of a place in a boarding school for "bright delinquents" Frank gets mentored into a passion for learning...and his life takes an entirely different direction.

"From shop floor to board room"

Beginning as an assistant in a Canadian supermarket, Frank's willingness to work hard and to continuously learn, starts him on an ascent to the highest levels of the corporate retail world, a happy marriage, fatherhood, and travels around the world.

"Good Luck is where preparation meets opportunity"

A Life in Stages follows Frank's rise from unpromising beginnings to eighty-two years of living a good life, learning, working hard and enjoying the love of family and the companionship of friends and colleagues.
