Bishops and Archbishops, top soccer players, politicians and actors. . . They all count him as their friend. Prime Ministers and senior royals stop and listen to his opinions. He's got an honorary degree and his very own soccer club. There was even a movie about him on national television. But who is Neil Baldwin? As a boy in a working-class part of the Potteries in the 1950s and 1960s, the education system wrote him off. But Neil, who believes you can just "get things by asking for them," knows his late Mom wanted him to have a happy life, and it’s his duty to her to have one. So he does. At Keele University, they hold regular celebrations and services for the decades he’s been a friend to the students, academics, and vice-chancellors; but he’s never been a student, a teacher, or had any formal connection with the place. At Stoke City Football Club, he’s "more famous than the players." He’s even got a dialog going with the queen—though that one’s still a little one-sided. This is the inspiring, moving and at times hysterically funny story of Neil Baldwin’s marvelous life.
