New Title

Hi everyone,

After careful discussions with Unbound, it’s been decided to change the title of Larry Stephens’ biography from Glarnies, Green Berets and Goons to something with broader appeal. The new title is... *drum roll*




It's All In The Mind: The Life and Legacy of Larry Stephens.

The phrase, "it's all in the mind" was used during Commando training in the Second World War and later made an appearance in the Goon Show so it sums up Larry's life perfectly!

I hope you like it.

I love the new title - I never knew that the Goons catchphrase "It's all in the mind, you know" came from the Commandos!
