A proper autobiography, 4 Mar 2014
It is so nice to read an autobiography that is written (a) at the end of a distinguished career, and (b) for some purpose other than blatant self-aggrandisement. Sir Richard comes across as the ultimate army officer and family man, and gets his point across strongly without much controversy. I was expecting a few fireworks but actually his assessment of the political leaders during his time is more than fair, although rightly it would make for uncomfortable reading for certain Labour PMs.
