Autobiography of an Unknown Man traces the author's life from his birth, childhood in England and Namibia, years at boarding school and university, his early successes, family life, two disastrous marriages, the success of his company created and developed in Namibia during the South West African Border War with Angola, the company's move to South Africa and its collapse after President P.W. Botha's 1985 "Rubicon" speech that nearly brought South Africa to its knees. The company's takeover by IGI Ltd., and IGI's decision to abandon the construction industry in 1990 and Chris's decision to leave South Africa for Hong Kong in search of a new beginning are all covered. The book traces the author's life working in the Far East, South East Asia and the Middle East and culminates in his retirement to Hua Hin in Thailand. An unusual feature of this autobiography is that it correlates the author's life with world and South African/Namibian events from Chris's birth in 1941 to his retirement in 2012.
