The author, a retired electronics consultant engineer, spent ten years as a researcher and lecturer at Southampton University (the Ivory Tower) and a further twenty-eight years in industry, mostly as a one-man-band consultant roving the world (the Road Warrior). These are his stories: some funny, some sad, and some just interesting.


This book is dedicated to all the people who took my classes on test, Design-For-Test and boundary scan. I learnt as much from you as you all learnt from me. Thank you.
