College dropout who became successful: Digging deep to go from rags to riches It seems that you can’t make up rags-to-riches stories. They read like scripts for movies, but they’re the true-life dramas of famous people who were mostly born into deep poverty and in terrible circumstances but who all went on to become superstars.

At the edge of the Black Forest in south-western Germany, Edgar Meyer turned onto a medieval road barely the width of an ATV. Vines curled overhead and drooped down over discreet garden gates, while birdsong and the hum of Meyer’s vintage BMW were the only sounds. We were driving through the busy town of Dossenheim, yet we were completely alone on this peaceful little lane.
