Mr. Worker clearly had an enjoyable time researching and writing this book. I wasn't sure what to think of the book until I got to the bit about Docky and started to really chuckle. The Anti-Pope Games also left a distinct impression in my memory. While there may only be a niche market for this book, if you've ever wondered about the sport of Mongol Vegetable Cutting, the Andalusia Hopping Race or Bull Pulling, look no further than this definitive work.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool.

I have been to 93 countries and territories including the Western Caribbean and Scotland in 2014, The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, and France and Slovakia in 2016.

My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, The Fast Show, Brass, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders.

I love being creative in my writ
