Confessions of a soap salesman.

This takes you back to the 1950’s before supermarkets and identikit town centres. Shops were family owned by eccentrics with “idiosyncratic retail management style”.

The cut-and-thrust world of the soap salesman, tussles with grocers, and devious methods to beat his competitors, as well as a coming of age story.

The author worked for Procter & Gamble from 1957 to 1977.

The book contains two pages of advertising images used in the past by Proctor & Gamble.
