This is a long awaited memoir from leading military publisher Leo Cooper. Yorkshire born. he was educated at Radley and by National Service in Kenya, before returning to London to join the publishing firm Longmans. He later worked for Andre Deutsch and Hamish Hamilton, who both decided that he was unemployable, a decision with which he thoroughly concurred. They both sacked him. There was only one thing to do and that was 'if you can't join them, beat them' and this was what Leo did. This book is a vivid account of the efforts made to keep a small publishing company going whilst being permanently short of capital and experience.

Born on 25 March 1934, Leonard 'Leo' Cooper worked for numerous distinguished publishing houses before setting up his own independent publishing house, Leo Cooper Ltd, in 1968.

Cooper's memoirs were published in 2005, entitled All My Friends Will Buy It - A Bottlefield Tour.

Leo Cooper sadly died aged 79, on Friday, 29 November 2013, survived by his wife - author Jilly Cooper - and children.
