How Did You Know All These People? The Memoirs of John Lidstone
“How do you know all these people?” was a golf course retort from a retired army General in response to the author telling him that Sir Paul Girolami, chairman of Glaxo, had written the foreword to his latest book. It is a tiny glimpse into the fascinating array of influential business and society leaders, politicians and celebrities that John Lidstone has met and worked with over the course of his life.
JOHN LIDSTONE’S FASCINATING MEMOIR OF HIS EVENTFUL LIFE IN BUSINESS & PUBLIC SERVICE -
John’s life has been an eventful one -
It is a mixture of stories, published letters and material such as the Churchill Christmas Lecture about the reform of the Honours System, which led to John’s two appearances as an expert witness to the Commons Select Committee Inquiry.

How Did You Know All These People? is an amusing and fascinating glimpse into not only John’s long life, but the lives of the many wonderful characters he has met along the way.
