'Peter Doyle grew up as a barefoot boy among the fishermen of the bay, on the shores of Sydney Harbour. It was here, in the place he loved, that his family founded the original Doyles - the most famous and popular restaurant in Australia.
The raggedy lad became Australia's Mr Fish, a millionaire living the champagne and lobster lifestyle. yet in his heart Peter Doyle has remained a simple fisherman, passionately connected to the sea.
King Tide is the story of his rise, starting with the schoolboy angler who helped put food on his family table during the Great Depression. Though poor, their lives were rich in love and adventure.'
