No one who has met Simon Murray will contest the view that he’s eminently memorable. The octogenarian businessman and adventurer is a raconteur with a knack for great storytelling. His first book – published in 1978 – was a bestseller that recounted his five years in the French Foreign Legion.

Many decades later and WiC had a sneak preview of volume two of his memoirs earlier this summer. This time the focus rests largely on his business career – principally the quarter of a century he spent first with Jardine Matheson and then with Li Ka-shing’s Hutchison Whampoa.

Suffice to say, for anyone who has lived or worked in Hong Kong there is plenty of dinner party conversation to be had from Murray’s recollections in this new book – which came out last Monday. Click here to read our review of Nobody Will Shoot You If You Make Them Laugh.
