Mike Wainwright has been many things in his varied life: sportsman, teacher, brass band member, mountain climber... the list goes on. From his Salvation Army beginnings in a small town in Lancashire and beyond to his current life in Africa, this open, honest and overwhelmingly human memoir tells the story of a life lived to the full. Mike is never afraid to change course and take up a new challenge; whether it is being thrown into playing in a rugby team or leaving his old life behind to move to Africa and find love again. Watch the world as it changes around him, but, despite these changes, Mike is a man who makes every second count.
