We didn't produce this one but it's an inspiring read

A fresh approach to business success. This is Tom O’Toole’s revised first book – a business auto-biography, where he has gathered together many reminiscences. Behind this real Irish-Australian tale are many things – a life philosophy, incredible honesty, a message for all, a journey of self-discovery and more than that: a real rollicking Aussie yarn featuring three kangaroos, two possums, one platypus and lots more!
