timwaterstonetim waterstoneTim Waterstone is one of Britain’s most successful businessmen, having built the Waterstone’s empire that started with one small bookshop in 1982. The Face Pressed Against a Window not only outlines the business philosophy that allowed the company to become the largest booksellers in Europe but it is a charming and evocative memoir recalling the childhood experiences that led Tim Waterstone to become one of the our most celebrated entrepreneurs. As the Independent said: ‘Mr Waterstone …. has made book-buying a pleasurable experience, not an obstacle course. … He has made high culture stylish’.
