About Adrian Sturrock
Adrian Sturrock is a writer, occasional musician, teacher, and ethnic minority (except when in Wales), specialising mostly in observation and unconsidered opinion. He currently lives in Buckinghamshire, UK, with wife, Natalie: his travel companion, best friend, and the person responsible for keeping him out of trouble on social media.
His first travelogue, THE SAT NAV DIARIES was well received on both sides of the Atlantic, gaining a string of 5-star reviews and culminating in a nomination for a 2018 Kindle Book Award. His follow up, THE SAT NAV DIARIES 2.0 (HEADING EAST…ISH) has been equally well received and has itself been nominated for a 2021 Kindle Book Award.
Adrian has also published two successful collections of humour articles through his RANDOM series, in which he considers a number of everyday pressing issues, from ‘how to get paid to fail a job interview’, to ‘why it is perfectly fine to blame French sociologists for one’s own first world problems’.
Beyond his own publications, Adrian Sturrock has contributed to a number of travel and lifestyle anthologies and online publications, as well as having had his poetry/lyrics displayed alongside those of Benjamin Zephaniah in Luton Town Hall (though it is unlikely that Benjamin is aware of this).
Other claims to fame include being smiled at by Madonna, and having once spent an afternoon watching Ace Ventura, Pet Detective in Barry Gibb’s living room, where Bee Gee’s manager, David English, remarked on his shoes.

This isn't a travelogue; it's much less than that. If you are looking for a font-of-all knowledge encyclopaedic guru that will help you plan your next European adventure, you'll hate this book.

Time makes you wiser, say people who like to appear wise. Adrian Sturrock is not so sure. In his mind, all time does is introduce us to more stuff to be confused about. And this isn’t merely confined to the world out there; it applies equally to home life, where navigating relationships can sometimes seem as straightforward as a Hogwarts staircase - or that lithograph by Escher, if one wants to appear posh. Either way, life is confusing.
‘Never date a woman whose ambition it is to kick a pigeon’ - Sound advice, indeed. This is Adrian Sturrock’s second collection of articles, in which he explores more irrelevant 21st Century issues, including:
• How to get paid to fail a job interview
• How best to achieve heatstroke at minus twenty degrees
• Why time travellers should seriously consider using the Post Office
• Why it’s perfectly fine to blame French sociologists for your own first world problems
