Former Spicers CEO Bill Armstrong has published the story of his life and career.
The 400-page tome, called A Life In Perspective, begins with Armstrong’s formative years – including his childhood in a mill town near Manchester and life as a teenager in the 1960s. He then devotes a good part of the book to his 34-year career with Spicers – a period in which the company was transformed from a UK manufacturer into a pan-European wholesaler.
The final section of the book is, in Armstrong’s own words, “my attempt to find an accord between my life experience and the revelations and reflections of others”.
A Life In Perspective can be found on Amazon and is available in both paperback and Kindle editions.
OPI members may also be interested to dip back into the archives and read a Big Interview with Armstrong that was published in 2000.
