George Carey was born in 1935 in the East End of London, the son of porter. After failing his 11-plus he left school at 15, and began working at the London Electricity Board as an office boy and served with the British armed forces in Iraq in the 1950s. By the time he was 20, he had decided he wanted to be ordained. After positions as parish priest and Bishop of Bath and Wells, he became the 103rd Archbishop of Canterbury and served in office from 1991-2003.Review:

‘There are as many scores settled here as in, say, Edwina Currie’s, and that is why they are a surprisingly engrossing read.’ Daily Telegraph
‘There is...something very refreshing about a contemporary churchman writing so openly about his personal relationship with God. For me, his confessions of doubt form the most vivid and attractive parts of his autobiography.’ Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday
