"I've lost an eye to disease, suffered a brain haemorrhage, a heart attack and 12 months in prison. I've brought 20,000 babies into the world as a doctor, and owned ground-breaking clinics in two countries. I have lost and retrieved a luxury car collection and have probably supported more lawyers than most. I still walk with a limp because of a high-speed car crash. I've risen on more than one occasion from an abyss of corruption that would leave most people crumpled. Now it is time to tell my side of the life that the media have consumed." Business entrepreneur, innovator, celebrity and medico, Geoffrey Edelsten reveals all in this long-awaited biography. It covers his life as a musical entrepreneur with Festival Records, Glenn Shorrock and his company Hit Productions, to his career as a country doctor, city businessman and night club owner. His ground-breaking medical clinics introduced computerised records to Australia, revolutionised pathology sampling processes and stayed open for 24-hours, a model that has been copied all over the world. When he bought the Sydney Swans in 1985, he was on top of the world. But it was not to be for long. In a case involving innuendo and interpretation, and phone tapping, Edelsten was jailed for a year - supposedly for bribing a hit man. After 12 months in jail and despite everything he has been through, Edelsten continues to fight to clear his name.
