The Iberian Job

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


The Iberian Job, a mad business scheme designed by Rob Godfrey to get the £30,000 he needed to build Commuter, an installation piece. Commuter is a 50 foot long coffin with toy trains running up and down it, and also a serious attempt to create consciousness within a machine.This isn't 'artificial intelligence', but non-biological intelligence: a real mind outside of a messy biological structure like the brain.

The Gods were angry, though, and while attempting to get Commuter built, Rob went through incredible hardship and misfortune, including serious injury, and on a number of occasions he ended-up homeless and penniless. The Iberian Job got Rob into a whole heap of trouble and left his reputation in tatters. This almost unbelievable tale spans the UK, France, Spain and Portugal.

The Iberian Job is a journey into one man's quest to answer the most fundamental question of them all: what is the 'mind'? It's also a journey across western Europe and gives a rich insight into what it's like to live in places such as France and Portugal, particularly with regard to being down and out. After reading this book you'll never be afraid again.

The Iberian Job runs to approx. 67,000 words and contains 15 photos.
