For centuries, people have been travelling to St. Andrews. Whether they were on a holy pilgrimage to see the magnificent Cathedral and the preserved bones of St. Andrew, or devout golfers putting their skills to the test on the Old Course - that holy grail of golf courses - or just students and scholars jostling for a place at one of Scotland's most esteemed centres of learning, St. Andrews has always attracted pilgrims.
Michael Tobert leads his readers through St. Andrews' historic highs and lows with a potent combination of the anecdotal and the informative. His writing is both astute and downright funny, and he proves that sometimes, truth really is stranger than fiction.
Michael Tobert grew up in Nottinghamshire. After Oxford University, he tried his hand in the City of London (where he hated every moment), at a water company in the West Midlands and at the London Business School. He then headed north where his fragmented career culminated in an attempt to start his own publishing company. This, to his wife's astonishment, was not a total failure. He has lived in St Andrews for the last 20 years and spends his spare time on the golf course.
