When the Swinging Sixties arrived in Tayside, Robert Murray had just become the youngest manager in the history of famous grocery business William Low & Co. Ltd. at only nineteen years of age. Little could he have realised that this was to be just the beginning of a decade of incredible social and cultural change for Scotland and the wider world - a revolution which would touch every life and workplace.

In this sequel to his much-loved book The Grocer's Boy, Robert discusses the trials and tribulations of being a traditional grocer at the dawn of the supermarket age, before moving on to new challenges later in the decade which included an eventful tenure in the fast-moving domain of college education and a step further afield into the busy corporate world.

Recounting his loving family ties and enduring friendships, marriage and parenthood, nostalgic reminiscence and thoughtful reflection, The Grocer's Boy Rides Again takes a fresh look at this most iconic of decades, considering a country which was in a period of rapid transition but where a helpful attitude and good customer service remained of paramount importance.
