Well written and extremely exciting. The author writes about his amazing life with such ease and experience it sounds as if his incredible journeys are as normall as walking his dog!
I liked his points at the end of each chapter listing the things that he has learnt in that campaign.
Well written, a complete masterpeice; for absoloutly anyone who is interested in his incredible life!
On face value it is the account of the travels and experiences of a truly inspiring explorer: the achievements; the failures; the determination. There are lots of pictures, and the book is well ordered with each chapter dedicated to a particular challenge or expedition.
But it is also a great source of advice and inspiration for anyone involved in managing people: with summarised snippets of the key lessons learned through each expedition. Some more relevant to expeditions, but most are relevant to the 'real' world. Profound statements that may seem like common sense, but not always obvious unless pointed out.
Anyone who has seen Sir Ranulph Fiennes speak will realise that this book has indeed been written by him. His style is enjoyable to read with a mix of frank opinion, modesty, and humour.
If you appreciate an honest individual who works hard, takes occasional chances, and is driven by sheer determination, then you will enjoy this book.
It's a great book, everyone should read it to see what is possible with determination and little else. The sad thing is that I can't imagine that there will ever be anyone like him again.
