Good old Peers, a pigmy through and through. This is the story of the short guy and a guide to making a million or eight. Peers was a short chap about 3ft 5 with his shoes on, he was nothing special as a youngster and lived happily with his big sister- who was allot younger than him. He wasn't ugly and didn't stand out as anything major; he had a normal toned complexion and no spots or glasses. He was a happy soul and had friends but none close to him.
