Summary
Resuming his story where Beaten by a Blow left off, Dennis McIntosh gives an eye-opening account of seven years working underground, and how it impelled him to turn his life around. When Dennis McIntosh first walked onto the construction site for the tunnel running from Werribee to the Westgate Bridge, he'd never worked underground before and he was terrified. He was an alcoholic and his eldest daughter was on an intensive brain-retraining program due to a childhood injury; he had to settle. This was his last chance. That was in 1985, and when he resurfaced for the final time seven years later, Dennis was a changed man. Dennis McIntosh was taught some hard lessons in the tunnel, and not just about the work he was doing. He learnt to control his panic attacks and stay off the grog, but his epiphany came with the recovery of his daughter, and the realisation that he too could retrain his brain, by getting himself an education
