In this memoir, From Horses to Cyberspace, David and Helga Compston recount their experiences from early World War II days in Britain to David's contribution in the revival of Manchester, to the extension of their family in retirement. The story, therefore, becomes a socio-historical and political account of Britain from post war austerity, leading to the ups and downs of the UK's standing in the world, 'The Sick Man of Europe', 'The Winter of Discontent'. to the rivival of the work ethic under Margaret Thatcher. There is focus on significant developments in the economy as it moved from a manufacturing base to services, with emphasis on information technology, while also following the changes in the social structure and culture of the nation as it became a multicultural society. Depth to the story is provided with an insight into David's international engineering career spanning from Mexico to India to The London Eye.
