Tom Pendry presents 'Taking It On The Chin'

Published: 21 July 2016

Senate Publishing is delighted to support Lord Pendry's new title Taking It On The Chin.

Tom Pendry has been a boxer and scholar, whose political career as an agent, candidate, Labour MP and Peer has spanned over sixty years. 

As well as introducing key legislation, his time in Parliament saw him famously kick-start Tony Blair’s political career, lead the first anti-apartheid demonstration at a cricket match of an all-white South African side, and head up the successful fight to keep sport on Radio 5.

A well respected past Sports Minister within the Labour party, Lord Pendry dislocated his own shoulder showing Muhammad Ali how to punch, almost knocking out the world heavyweight champion’s wife in the process.

Full of revealing anecdotes, this title is a wonderful insight into a life lived to the full.
