In the early 1990s the communist block collapses and Poland re-emerges on the world stage. An incredibly exciting time of momentous change, including economic shock therapy, creating a highly charged atmosphere often described as the greatest opportunity in the history of capitalism. Like the Wild West, it attracted pioneers seeking to exploit the opportunity and the women who came with it. The book follows the life of an anti-hero born in the displaced Polish community after WW2 and ideally placed to be such a pioneer.
In a frank and honest way, it breaks the traditional male code of silence and exposes the behaviour of businessmen travelling abroad. A story of a meteoric rise to success followed by spectacular failure. The author doesn’t hold back on his strong opinion on the treatment of Poland throughout history, his own highly controversial views on political correctness and his clear preferences for the way women present themselves, in keeping with the period.
