This book tells the remarkable story of Achilles du Preez’s life. Despite the dire predictions of the psychiatrists treating him, he has recovered to become rehabilitated as a fully functioning member of the community. He emigrated from South Africa in 1999 to live in the United Kingdom, where he registered as a dentist, pursuing a special interest in orthodontics, until his retirement. He now lives in Eastleigh, Hampshire, where he spends his time writing and studying music.
