Singo The John Singleton Story

About the Book

An icon of Australian life. An inspiring story of success. The uncensored life story of John Singleton: his mates, his women, his larrikin ways. Kerry Packer calls him one of the few men he would trust with a handshake. Four of his ex-wives still think of him as the most charming, romantic and exciting man they've ever met. Within Australia's thriving pub culture he's looked on as a virtual folk hero: a natural-born rebel who enjoys his beer, knows his football and is even prepared to shout the bar after a big win at the races. Yet John Singleton is also a figure of heated controversy whose very name can trigger a lively debate. Many praise him, while others condemn him for creating the 'ocker' commercials that revolutionised the Australian ad industry. His wilder drinking sessions have led to a number of assault charges and his Peter Pan tear-away antics have seen him dive atop a dinner table full of bankers and their wives. He is the constant target of dark whispers about his private life, including his six marriages; but surprisingly, one of his best-kept secrets is the millions he donates to charity. An incurable larrikin, serial lover and explosive genius on a lit fuse - Singo's the nickname that says its all. Others may be more famous than John Singleton but no one has a more fascinating or extraordinary public image.
