A life of spearfishing diving and polo
Publisher: Tony Buxton
A truly astonishing account of the author's progression from a laid-back spearfishing guide in Sri Lanka to an international celebrity. His services were much in demand by the rich and famous, including the grandson of America's richest man. They invited him to their homes, where he experienced a lifestyle that he hardly knew existed and met three of his four wives. His passion was exploring the underwater world and virgin jungles. He experienced many shark attacks and was pulled underwater by a giant grouper as well as fighting of crocodiles and a wounded leopard. He was the first person to dive in the Maldives, India and Thailand. He eventually ended up in Singapore where he formed a very profitable joint venture with oil giant Exxon to underwater clean tankers. With the money he made, he took up the expensive sport of polo. He was playing in international tournaments all over the world and the life of a veritable Playboy socialising with international celebrities. Among his closest friends were Kings, prime ministers, presidents and movie stars. He finally ended up living in the Palace of a wealthy sultan.
