Summary
Whilst undergoing test in a clinic for a mysterious and debilitating illness, the author felt a sudden compulsion to try his hand at a 'spot of poetry'. Seventeen months later, there were 303 poems in his slip file - a file which accompanies him wherever he travels. The 'spot of poetry; became a fully fledged obsession for him.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Felix Dennis, better known as the enfant terrible of magazine publishing and one of Britain's richest men, hasastonishinglybecome Britain's best-selling poet with A Glass Half Full.

American novelist and critic, Tom Wolfe, calls Dennis "a twenty-first century Kipling" and says that his poetry 'rollicks and rolls with rhyme, meter, and melody.'

Now, gathered together with an American audience in mind, together with a spoken-word CD, comes a selection of Dennis's poems.

Whether reflecting ruefully on getting older, celebrating Bob Dylan, serenading the United States or sending up the cliches and stereotypes of our times, Felix Dennis reveals himself as a poet with an eye for the tender telling detail, and a powerful gift for communication. Funny, touching, frank, and uncompromising, A Glass Half Full is a woonderful and inspiring collection.
