Item description for A Solitary Confinement by Robin Sheppard...

Robin Sheppard had always seemed like a lucky guy! Proud father of two sons in their late teens, Sam the eldest (the musical one) and Charlie (the artistic one); still good friends with his first wife Georgina known always as George and partnered by the effervescent and indomitable Suzanne known by all as Suzi; when his hitherto contented life took a different turn. He had bounded through 50 years of an unfettered existence working in places that didn't feel like any factory or office you might know. A universe largely comprising five star hotels set in manicured gardens, with fine wines, fabulous foie gras, and outrageous flower arrangements, speckled with well heeled customers in which the anticipation of their needs was paramount. After growing up in Bath he had become an hotelier who delighted in operating some of the very best of Britain's hotels, winning hotel of the year prizes along the way, before founding with some like minded chums, his own specialist hotel operating group. Ending up in London he presided over an empire of a dozen or so glamorous hotels which featured architecture of the grade one variety, decadent dcor, period fixtures in capability parkland surroundings, and food of the highest standard. His was an untroubled workplace. Taking time out along the way to invent the truly iconic, deep blue, skittle shaped, Ty-Nant mineral water business and then a niche adult soft drinks business he became an entrepreneur without ever knowing it and a role model for many a novice hotel student along the way. Then things changed. A Solitary Confinement is the inspirational story of Robin's encounter with Guillain-Barre syndrome. "It's a great read, sad and funny. The piquancy of the humour sits right up there with Tony Hancock in the Blood Donor when he asked for a badge to be inscribed, 'nothing pretentious, just they gave that others might live'......" Andrew Mourant, 'The Independent' "Magnificent, he ought to change jobs, retire somewhere gorgeous and just carry on writing ..." Dominic Walsh, 'The Times'

Reviews - What do customers think about A Solitary Confinement?

Brilliant! An inspiring Man!  Mar 25, 2008
When you only have lemons! This is a beautifully written book , truly inspirational. This book has no time for self pity, for really explaining the horrific trauma of a totally dehabilitating illness or the horrors of will I ever be ok again? Robin s gentle humour and warm manner gently glides you over the pain of life , the nervous mountains, deep ravines and headlong crashes of lifes misfortune. This is the guy you want to be sitting next to you on the plane as it runs out of fuel. Truly Marvellous!
