Interesting, thought provoking and intelligent...,
This review is from: The Circuit: AN EX-SAS SOLDIER / A SECRETIVE INDUSTRY / THE WAR ON TERROR / A TRUE STORY (Paperback)
Having just finished this I was compelled to write a brief review to say how much I enjoyed it - really don't understand some of the negative reviews that suggest the author is arrogant and a know-it-all - what comes across strongly is a passion for getting things right, compassion for others and concern that there are those at the top who are driven by money and greed and not the welfare of others - if any of those things equal arrogance then I hope I am considered "arrogant" one day.
The majority of the other positive reviews here have said it all already really - this is an in depth, intelligent and thought provoking book about an area that most of us safe in our 9-5's back in the UK and other safe areas around the world probably don't even know about. Some of the stats that Mr Shepherd reels off are shocking (and whilst I know you can show anything with stats, I have no reason to believe those in the book are not accurate).
I'd definitely recommend this if you want to use your brain and learn something while you're doing it - if you want derring do and action all the way I'd suggest the latest Chris Ryan or Andy McNab!!
