From a Hackney council estate to the House of Lords, this is the extraordin ary story of one of our greatest entrepreneurs. Alan Sugar was born in 1947 and brought up on a council estate in Clapton, in Hackney. As a kid he watched his dad struggle to support the family, nev er knowing from one week to the next if he'd have a job. It had a huge impa ct on him, fuelling a drive to succeed that was to earn him a sizeable pers onal fortune. Now he describes his amazing journey, from schoolboy enterpri ses like making and selling his own ginger beer to setting up his own compa ny at nineteen; from Amstrad's groundbreaking ventures in hi-fi and compute rs, which made him the darling of the stock exchange, to the dark days when he nearly lost it all; from his pioneering deal with Rupert Murdoch to his boardroom battles at Tottenham Hotspur FC.
