Life’s a Banquet is the unofficial guide book to negotiating your way through life through education, family life and business, to relationships, marriage, failure and rejection.
Aged 21, Robin Bennett was set to become a cavalry officer and aged 21 and a half, he found himself working as an assistant grave digger in South London wondering where it had all gone wrong.
Determined to succeed, he went on and founded The Bennett Group, aged 23, and since then has gone on to start and run over a dozen successful businesses in a variety of areas from dog-sitting to cigars, translation to home tuition. In 2003, Robin was recognised in Who’s Who as one of the UK’s most successful business initiators.
Catapulting readers through his colourful life and career, Robin Bennett’s memoir is an inspiring tale.

This was a very funny, entertaining read that was also quite thought provoking. I must confess that I hadn’t heard of Robin before I read this book, so I found this a very interesting read.
Robin takes us all the way through his life, starting with his child hood, with some very amusing stories which had me chuckling to myself. His descriptions of his large, warm and slightly eccentric family were wonderful to read about and made me smile. I thought this was a great way to start the book as it helps readers to understand the person behind the success and meant that I warmed to him so didn’t feel jealous of his amazing success.
His story of his business success was fascinating to read about and I enjoyed learning about how he achieved it. This part of the story is told in a matter of fact, modest way without seeming boastful but in a similar tone to the first story with some amusing antidotes. I found myself to be very impressed with all that he had achieved and will definitely be looking out for him in the future.
Huge thanks to Rachel from Rachel’s Random resources for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book.
