Living out of a briefcase has become a way of life for Peter Biddlecombe - and his regular dispatches from the front line of international expense account culture have offered desk-bound readers everywhere a unique insight into the strange, bizarre and often hilarious places where business and pleasure meet all over the world. Yet despite all his efforts in this, the lot of the English businessman abroad is still not a happy one. FASTER, THEY'RE GAINING is the sixth in the series of dispatches from all over the world, taking Peter Biddlecombe's total to 115 countries visited and described (and sometimes demolished). Minsk, Valletta, La Paz, Mandalay and Prague are among the 20 cities featured in this book, a heroic venture. After all, Dr Livingstone had only lions and journalists to worry about.
