Speaking as one who features significantly in the latter half of the book, I have to say this is an account of the trip from a very personal perspective! Keith has made a very easy, entertaining read, and his liberal use of his artistic licence doesn't detract from that! It is, of course, necessary to edit and compress to make a manageable volume.
The fact that I have bought about 5 copies over the years to give to friends & family speaks for itself, but keep a little salt by your side when reading, to add a pinch now and then! *Plot Spoiler Alert!* My favourite moment is Keith setting up his charity-shop tent for the first time in Morocco, only to discover it is a kiddies one!

One of the funniest and, at the same time, interesting books I have ever read. Truly captivating. Well written and descriptive. From initial preparation and the bureaucratic nightmare of infinite travel arrangements (the book would be quite useful for those thinking of renewing a passport at a provincial post office), the almost pathetic attempts to leave England to the sandy journey itself, this book saves you the trouble of making the journey yourself. (I can almost smell those Bedouin campfires, and feel the grit in my underpants). Great touches of humour permeating throughout. Admittedly I was on the shortlist of candidates to accompany Lord Mallens on the epic adventure but do not hold the fact that he selected someone else against him.

A great read. Escapism at its best. A great gift for anyone you're not keen on.

I liked this book ,me.

Lord Malens decides one fine day that it would be rather fun to buy a cheap and knackered car and drive it through Europe and down through some of the most dangerous and dodgey roads imagineable in Africa with his follicularly challenged sidekick Graham.
After a lot of preparation, some of it quite informative, the intrepid duo set off from deepest darkest Devon on their adventure of a lifetime. I won't spoil it for the reader but many adventures and much hilarity ensues.
A thoroughly enjoyable readable book written by an extraordinary, 'ordinary' chap with a very understanding, supportive wife with high tolerances for domestic DIY disasters.
The incident with the shoeshine made me laugh out loud!

Please buy and read this book.

Also please note that I was not even on the long list for selection as the co-pilot...
