Enter The Dragon

Enter the Dragon

In his revealing and controversial memoir, Theo not only takes the reader behind the scenes on Dragons' Den, he explains how he made his fortune. He also provides a masterclass in business methods that will enable anyone who reads this book to learn so much about how they too can improve their business acumen.

Theo recalls how his family moved to England from Cyprus and how as a poor immigrant, he took whatever jobs he could. His formal working career started as an assistant to the tea boy with a Lloyds of London broker before moving into retail at the age of 18. He then moved into property and corporate finance, setting up his own company aged just 23. He reveals the methods that took him to the top, in spite of his dyslexia and he also provides some fascinating insight into the world of football from his spell as chairman of Millwall FC.

But, above all, this is a book that will provide all readers with the opportunity to learn from one of the nation's most successful businessmen and put his ideas into practice.

Theo’s autobiography, published by Orion at £8.99, is now on sale in all good high street bookstores.
