Now the bad news. It was very sloppily produced and shows no sign of having been edited or even proof read; there are many spelling errors and typos as well as illogical paragraph breaks, six-line sentences, clumsy syntax and grammatical errors. Often he ploughs on in a stream of consciousness style, then reins himself back to the story. I'm making due allowance for the man's education and place in time - but the classical allusions, obscure quotes, political insider titbits and 19th century stodgy, convoluted sentences do pall after a while. It seems to me that Mosley, ever the 'man of action', was more intent on getting all his thoughts down and published than attending to what he would have deemed the boring bits, i.e. turning his tome into a readable one. He repeats himself ad nauseam, mostly when describing his trait of 'action not words', his favourite. He really should have handed the MS over to a very competent editor who could have polished it up into a half-decent legacy. This is a revised 'illustrated' edition, but the photographs are all very poorly scanned and produced, so adding to the slapdash flavour of the book.
