Robin writes of his years of work in different financial roles, including time with Bond Corporation and later for Kerry Packer. He discusses his personal life, connection to Judaism and his thoughts about Jews in the Diaspora. This led to Robin researching the Devries and Gomper(t)z lines of his family.
