Thought-Provoking Thoughts About Living
“Frank, profound and controversial… in his 500 epigrams about most aspects of life and living, Derek is unafraid of controversy in his dealings with such delicate matters as love and religion… he offers much food for thought… although basically dealing in philosophy, it is well packaged in a veil of humour, making it highly readable. Rare gems of wisdom and deep sincerity. Derek has traveled to 75 countries and lived in 8 of them, making him an interesting and unusual author.” – Margaret Wasserfall, Publications Manager, Look & Listen (Rhodesia’s TV Guide)
“As for your ‘bible’, it has received comments from people in the Vatican ranging from ‘interesting’ and ‘revolutionary’ to ‘some kind of nut’” – Christine Slatford, Secretary to the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rome.
A Smile Is My Passport
Derek Partridge is no ordinary man and this is no ordinary book…. his words provoke our minds, stimulate our emotions, breathe fresh air into our thinking… and make us feel good to be alive. It is not just a story of travel, but an account of one man’s experiences in tasting what this life has to offer. Derek makes his travels through countries a journey through living. Each happening comes alive as he describes it with a candidness that shows he is not afraid to open himself to the world he passes through… and he shares those experiences with us. Each place has its special meaning to him… and he brings that to us. So, his adventures become our adventures. There is beauty, romance, laughter; anger and pain… along with all the other components of life that man has to deal with… if he is to live fully. – Honey Raider, President, Talent Representatives, New York
