about this item

Here for the first time is the incredible tale of one of the world's leading philanthropists; from the streets of Lambeth to glamor of LA, it's a compelling true story of rags to riches, and sharing those riches with others. From persuading Disney to license their characters for the first time outside the USA, to convincing film stars to perform in low budget movies, Laurie has carved success from his confident, entrepreneurial, and collaborative approach to life. And much of his success has been shared, his philanthropic work reaching the levels of far more public "givers" such as Bill Gates. Now in his 80's, Laurie still works every day, using his wealth and influence to help as many good causes and charitable organizations as he can, from building community centers to advising the government on how to make the NHS self-sufficient. It's an inspirational and fascinating story of entrepreneurial success, and commitment deserving causes.
