In the 1980s, author Philip Mattis was a police officer in the Avon and Somerset Constabulary, which he left in acrimonious circumstances. And because he stood up for righteousness and justice pertaining to his time with the force, he was persecuted for twenty-three years and nearly destroyed by evil forces in high places in Britain. But he has survived to tell the tale… In British Families Under Labour: And Lessons Learnt, he shares insights and nuggets of wisdom gleaned from his experiences.

Shocked and bewildered by the depths of depravity and mediocrity which human beings have sunk to in their relations with others, the author decided to make people aware of these pitfalls through this book. Here, Mattis writes about intrapersonal issues such as spending to be happy, saving oneself from a bad scenario, learning from mistakes, and much more. As well, he imparts his experiences in improving interpersonal relations. All in all, this book helps people improve their lives and relationship with others.

“As a human race, we are amazing in the many feats we have achieved, but the lack of progress in our relationship with each other shows that we also have an amazing capacity for stupidity on a grand scale,” says the author. Through British Families Under Labour: And Lessons Learnt, he tries to change this status quo and hopes to change people’s lives for the better.

British Families Under Labour: And Lessons Learnt will be featured at the 2012 Book Expo America in New York City on June 5-8, 2012.
