Surviving Corruption
by Dick Richards

This book tells of the experiences of a boy from age four, to an old man who went through life making decisions in his world of corruption. His choices, often fuelled by adrenaline did not affect his ability to fly under the radar of his employers and others, including law enforcement. His life was erratic and spontaneous, yet to others, appeared normal. His actions were often criminal, yet he felt a need to protect others.

This is the first book by a new author with an unusual life. He’s dealt with death in many different ways and as a result suffers from PTSD. As a youth, he was a willing street fighter, a thief and a victim of physical abuse. He was brought up in a dysfunctional home and went out on his own at 16 years of age. He married young, brought up a large family and is still with the same woman after 52 years. Despite a lack of formal education he was able to acquire jobs in law enforcement and firefighting for over 37 years as well as indulging in many entrepreneurial adventures and some political endeavours. Writing the book assists the author in dealing with his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
