Bold As Brass: My Story

£3.99

Product description

Hilary Devey is one of our most remarkable entrepreneurs and was an instant sensation when she appeared on Dragon's Den. Now, in this powerful memoir, she reveals the full story of her turbulent life. She describes how her father's bankruptcy sparked a fierce determination in her not to end up the same way. When her father started working in the pub trade, Hilary did too - at the age of seven - and has been grafting hard ever since. She built her own company, Pall-Ex, which today has an annual turnover of D100 million, never giving up even when she was so broke she couldn't afford to give her son a Christmas dinner. Admitting to terrible taste in men, Hilary opens up about her marriages and the destructive relationship she thought would break her. She tells how she faced a mother's worst nightmare, her son's heroin addiction, and fought back from a stroke that almost killed her. Bold as Brass is candid, brave and laced with the warmth and humour that have made Hilary so popular. Ultimately, it's as inspirational as the woman herself.
