Synopsis: "Pleeaze! Tell me that bomb isn't live!" is a follow on from Nick Crozbys' successful first book, "Pleeaze tell me that wasn't a teacher". Like its predecessor it continues in a humorously written, anecdotal style and is based on the multifarious events and incidents the author, Nick Crozby, has been privileged to encounter, enjoy and occasionally suffer during his long career in education. The events related were real but the names of all those "involved" have been changed to preserve anonymity. "Pleeaze! Tell me that bomb isn't live" describes how it was a working visit to Saudi that led to a totally unexpected change in direction to his and his wife's newly established teacher recruitment company. That in turn led to exciting, sometimes difficult but always interesting experiences and events in countries across the world. Helping set up new schools in Eastern Europe, Bahrain and China, advising and helping to staff and improve established schools in the Caribbean, Africa and Hong Kong all as a result of an initial visit to the Middle East. The scariest times were as a result of the Gulf Wars and visits to Kuwait, Qatar, Dubai in the aftermath. With his well-chosen stories and incidents Nick not only entertains but informs the reader about the nefarious, colourful behind the scenes goings on in the international educational world. The dialogue is colourfully illustrated with many carefully recalled situations, some sad, others naughty and some very moving. Incidents and characters seemed to follow him during his time in teacher recruitment just as they had during his teaching career and these too are humorously related.

About the Author: The author, Nick Crozby, was born before the outbreak of World War Two. As a child he always wanted to be a teacher and when old enough he trained as a Secondary teacher after successfully completing his Bachelor of Arts Degree and Educational Diploma courses. He then taught in several different schools before taking up a teaching appointment in a College of Education where in the course of his work he was involved with many schools, ran In-Service training courses and undertook research. He wrote numerous successful school text books and worked with The Schools Council, Her Majesties Inspectors, Local Education Authorities, Advisers and Radio and Television Companies on a wide range of different projects. His special interests lay in the areas of Fieldwork, Community Education, Disadvantage and Disaffection. As head of a Middle School he was able, in conjunction with outstanding colleagues, to put into practice many of his ideas. In his spare time he was a keen sportsman playing and helping to run rugby and cricket teams as well as doing occasional disc-jockeying for relaxation! After taking early retirement Nick worked for a short time as a sponsoring editor with a major educational publishing company. He and his wife, Emm, then founded a highly successful teacher recruitment company. Soon a chance meeting took their work in a totally different, unexpected direction which resulted in Nick and his wife working with schools and teachers' worldwide and especially in the Middle East opening up new horizons with many exciting experiences, opportunities and stories. Now being fully retired Nick and his wife enjoy a quieter more relaxed lifestyle, gardening, motor-homing, writing and craftwork and live in Spain for a part of the year. They also collect smoothing irons of which they have a considerable collection. Nick Crozby is the authors' pen name. He married his childhood sweetheart and has been happily married for over 50 years. They have two children and three grandchildren.
