This is a book for mature men with high intrinsic immaturity who enjoy simple things in life; No effort has been made in being politically correct with regards to religion, gender, ethnicity or other sensitive matters of general concern. It is for those who still can laugh at a poo-story. The book, although harmless, could easily upset a lot of morality fixed individuals, especially the ethical ones. Consequently, they are advised to pick up another, more serious book, and leave this one where it is.

The story is that of a teenage foreign student in England during the 1970's, spanning over a few years. It starts with the time in an English boarding school. After getting expelled at the age of sixteen he moves into a house with three other teenagers and starts high school studies. The university studies follow and life experiences flourish.

It is more or less a collection of stories you might tell a friend in a pub. Stories with high a level of juvenescence with very little philosophical repercussions.

Mehran Salehpour was born in Teheran, Iran in 1960. A Persian father and a German mother facilitated an insight into the arbitrariness of cultures. The first 9 years in school were involuntarily spent in seven different schools. O-Levels and A-Levels in England were complemented with a B. Sc. in physics from the University of Sussex. To his surprise, he received a Ph. D. in Nuclear/Ion Physics from the University of Uppsala, Sweden at the age of 25. He worked as a researcher in USA and Sweden and became an Associate Professor in Engineering Sciences from Uppsala University. He has published nearly 70 peer-reviewed papers in international scientific journals, including the highest ranked ones such as Nature and Science. He has also been awarded a prize from the European Physical Society for outstanding research.

He took an eighteen-year sabbatical from the academic life and worked in the industry for over fifteen years as among others, Managing Director. He has also been known for very long lunches and taking a couple of years of vacations at a time. All his occupations so far seemed rather serious and he is currently trying to find something less sombre to do.

He is married, has four children and lives in Sweden. Still
