Inhaltsangabe: Steve Scott was born on a tough council estate in Gosport, Hampshire, UK, in 1958 and this is where he spent the first part of his younger life. With his family, he had three-year spells in both Gibralter and Malta, his father being in the Ministry of Defence. He eventually moved to Plymouth in 1970 where he completed his education and began his career in retailing. With his wife, Jennie, he moved to South Africa in 1982, initially on a 3 year contract with a major South African retailer. Because they enjoyed the climate and the lifestyle they decided to stay on an extra 2 years but the call of 'home' beckoned and they returned to Plymouth in 1987.
Steve resumed his career in retailing, concentrating on logistics this time, a job that he initially loved and was passionate about. His depression first started in his late teens, with the depressive periods being few and far between initially, but were to grow more frequent and longer as the years went by. So much so, that eventually he lived constantly in the shadows of Churchill's 'Black Dog'. These times were a bitter and constant battle to retain his sanity and had an immense impact on his relationships both at home and at work. He eventually succumbed to a complete breakdown in 2006 and was no longer able to work. After nearly two and half years of rest and recuperation he was able to train as a personal and business coach and is now practising these skills helping others to overcome their challenges.
The book was written just after his breakdown and the process helped him to come to terms with many dark demons and bad memories and he hopes that others reading this book will be inspired to work on their demons and memories and leave the Inside and rejoin those on the Outside.
Steve still lives in Plymouth, UK, with his family and is still making good progress with his recovery.
