Mike Fendalton is a once-in-a-generation programmer - totally inept and unspeakably unlucky. His life in Braintree, Essex, revolves around the pub, work and failing to get lucky with women. So it comes as a major surprise when aliens abduct him to help them fix their enormous, out-of-control planetary defence system. It is an event that is to change his life completely.
"Saving Romford" is a humorous antidote to those books and television programs about genius programmers who can divert enemy missiles and break into the Pentagon's computers using nothing but a cellphone and a laptop. Our hero is a 9 to 5 slob who is far more concerned with his own well-being than that of his long-suffering employer.
Saving Romford is proving to be a very popular book with computer people and as a retirement or birthday gift for people in the computer industry.
