    DescriptionBorn in 1950, into a Glasgow still recovering from the war, Ron Culley grew up in a single-parent family, in one of the new housing projects on the periphery of the city built quickly and cheaply to accommodate its growing population. Despite early flirtations with mischief and having been expelled from school, Culley went on to spend forty years in public service in and around the city, twenty-three of them as chief executive of three of its key organizations. During a time of great change, when Glasgow transmogrified from an heavily industrialised city to one which embraced the new economies, it nevertheless left many of its communities struggling with poverty and lawlessness, the very conditions that inspired Culley to enter a life of service in the first place. Now retired, he lives in the south side of Glasgow with his wife, Jean as do his four sons. "I belong to Glasgow" is a proud claim that millions of people over the generations have made. Ron's book will certainly bring back memories for many people and, I hope, act as an inspiration for those who feel they have yet the ability to achieve more in life. - -- From the Foreword by Sir Alex Ferguson CBE, Manager, Manchester United Football Club.
