Summary

Pleb's Progress tells the story of social mobility and social change in twentieth-century Britain through the eyes of one incredibly lucky pleb. His long life was many lives, in which he did many different types of work, visited more than forty countries, and met many thousands of people, ranging from paupers to princes. The author uses this experience to explore the significance of work, wealth, class, love and humanity. He also diagnoses the causes of Britain's fractured society and points to ways to repair it that will benefit everyone from the richest to the poorest.
