Description

From his cage in a putrid, overcrowded Indian gaol, Paul
Jordan reflects on a life lived on the edge and curses
the miscalculation that robbed him of his freedom. His
childhood, marred by the loss of his father and brother,
produce a young man hell bent on being the best of the
best - an ambition he
achieves by being selected to join the elite SAS. He
survives the gut-wrenching training regime, deployment to
the jungles of Asia and the horrors of genocide in Rwanda
before leaving
the army to embark on a career as a security adviser. His
new life sees him pursuing criminals and gun-toting
bandits in Papua New Guinea and the Solomons, protecting
CNN newsmen as the US 7th Cavalry storms into Baghdad
with the outbreak of the Iraq War, and facing death on a
massive scale
as he accompanies reporters into the devastated
Indonesian town of Banda Aceh, flattened by the Boxing
Day tsunami. During his 24 days in an Indian gaol, Paul
Jordan discovers that friendship and human dignity
somehow survive the filth and deprivation. This is a
personal account of a tough, hardened fighter who
suddenly finds himself totally dependent on others for
his every need. The Easy Day was Yesterday is fast paced,
brutally honest and raw, but laced with dark humour. The
core of Paul Jordan's eventful life, however, is the
strength of his bonds with family and friends and the
ability of the human spirit to survive even the direst
adversity.
