Bob Edwards studied mathematics at Cambridge University, and earned his MSc and PhD from the London School of Economics. He embarked on a career as an economist and later as a contractor in economic, demographic and market research. He has owned and managed his own research firm since 1990. He has lived, worked or studied in Canada, England, Malaysia, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Scotland, Taiwan, and the United Arab Emirates. He holds a private pilot? license and has experience in parachuting. He survived spin training, engine failure, forced landing, a hang-glider crash, and a tangle with the shroud lines. Now that he is older but not wiser, he does more dangerous things, such as writing this book, and acting for film and television under the screen name Robert Isaac Harker
