In the course of his career, promoting Mental Literacy and the belief that Genius is present in every one of us, Tony has encountered numerous giant personalities. These include the eccentric singer and superstar Michael Jackson, whose children were taught by Tony; quintuple Olympic Gold winner Sir Steve Redgrave; ABBA member Benny Andersson and Poet Laureate Ted Hughes, whom Tony commissioned to write a Memory Poem with a difference. It is published here for the very first time.
