This is a fictionalised reconstruction of his last days.

The symposium's intention was to establish what was known of the role and importance of vegetable production in meeting human needs. The considerable emphasis on the animal arose from a recognition that animals are the main source of power and play an important role in using by-products, recycling nutrients and even producing the fuel (as manure) used to cook the vegetables grown. This book covers all factors that influence vegetable productivity within the most important vegetable production systems.

Faced with the modern television camera and zoom lenses, the performer must have absolute perfection of technique to sustain this illusion. Douglas Craggs emphasises the need to learn the correct method from the very beginning, and his first step is to explain the principles of breath control - the basis of Ventriloquism. Amusing anecdotes woven into the text.
