Finding My Way: Memoirs and short stories

Peter Deadman is a well-known figure in the field of Chinese medicine, health promotion and qigong. However it wasn't always like that. The first part of this book is an account of his childhood, teen rebellion, hippie travelling years, career in natural foods, discovery of Chinese medicine and the slow transition into the fine upstanding citizen he is now. 

The second half is made up of a number of short stories, many of which relate tangentially to the memoirs. It’s been described as a ‘riveting read’ and “What an interesting and captivating read. Honest, funny, moving and inspiring”

some reader reviews

A fascinating memoir of an extraordinary man

What an interesting and captivating read. Honest, funny, moving and inspiring, it is a joy to spend time in Peter’s company.

Amazon reviewer

Thought-provoking account of the author's life experience. I was particularly amused by one in 1969 where he gets into an argument with the pre-fame David Bowie!
