This little work is designed to bring you back, again and again, to refresh your view and attitude to life, living and everything in between. You will find no easy answers to your dilemmas here, rather an alternative view of how to approach them. Or to be honest, just Sir Terry's view. You never know, you might even agree with him... THE LITTLE BOOK OF COMMON SENSE will cover Sir Terry's views on: Life: One day at a time. But look where you're going. Particularly on a bike... Talk: Keep it short and to the point. You don't want people to think you're a politician. The most popular person at a party is the good listener. Particularly at an Irish party. Money: Save or spend? Risk is for derivative and hedge-fund wonks. And it's not their money, anyway. Hold on to your hard-earned ha'pennies - your children are going to need them. And everything else in-between...
In a magical mix of the personal and the political, the humorous and the tragic, the historic and the modern, this book photographically follows Terry Wogan on a return to his native land. Terry left Ireland in the late 1960s, after a childhood in Limerick dominated by the Catholic Church. Here, we see through Terry's eyes how the country has changed since then. He rediscovers its rugged coastline and the spectacular views he remembers from childhood holidays. He revisits old haunts, and hooks up with long-lost friends, colleagues, and fellow ex-pats, enjoying the nostalgia evoked by these experiences. But he doesn't shy away from the more complicated responses that led him to seek his fortunes elsewhere, as he also explains during the course of the book why he had to leave it all behind. The series will reflect the man himself: witty and urbane, relaxed yet engaging. But it will also reveal an unfamiliar Wogan-passionate, serious, investigative, and sometimes very emotional.
