James Davidson has written a wonderful autobiography, which captures the spirit of his many careers, through all the triumphs and disasters which life can throw at one. His anecdotes and memories as a witness of the great events at the end of Stalin's life in early 1950s Moscow are tempered with his political experiences at Westminster. His naval career ranges from witnessing the Japanese surrender in Tokio Bay to the what must have a very difficult posting in the Persian Gulf in the post war years. Family crises that few dare to write about, but which James does with humility and a degree of honestry. His farming exploits show humour, and determination over many years. This Highlander demonstrates and deserves his 'Thinker' role with great honour. Read and enjoy this book.

This is the clearly written story of someone who has lived through some diverse and interesting times - from boring naval duties to gathering information in Stalin's Russia, lambing on cold Scottish hillsides to the maelstrom of Parliamentary debate. The writer comes across as clear headed and modest. An easy and enjoyable read for men and women. His other books are written in the same clear informative style.
