Synopsis

DISCOVER THE SHOCKING TRUTH BEHIND THE BUSINESS AND LIFESTYLE OF SIR PHILIP GREEN

In this jaw-dropping expose, Oliver Shah uncovers the truth behind one of Britain's biggest business scandals, following Sir Philip Green's journey to the big time, the wild excesses of his heyday and his dramatic demise.


Stunning praise for the book:


'A detailed and entertaining dismantling of the 'king of the high street'' Guardian


'Superb' Evening Standard


'From the glitzy parties to the threatening phone calls, the larger-than-life characters to the speedy downfall, this real-life tale of hubris has all the elements of a Greek tragedy' City AM


'Entertaining stuff, pacily written. Filled with colourful characters - and expletives' The Times


'Shah has written a hard-hitting, often funny, ultimately sobering tale of how fortunes were made and lost in late 20th and early 21st century Britain' Financial Times


The author:

Oliver Shah is the award-winning Business Editor of the Sunday Times who uncovered the methods Green used to amass his gigantic offshore fortune and the desperation that drove his doomed BHS deal. Shah was named business journalist of the year at both the Press Awards and London Press Club Awards in 2017 for his investigation into Sir Philip Green. He studied English at Cambridge University and journalism at City University before joining City AM in 2009 and the Sunday Times in 2010. Aged 34, Shah lives in east London.
