But what might come across as a major flaw to many allowed something else, its demonstrated an honesty that will only go on to enhance the story of one of Australia's Heroes. Allowing the reader the chance to get to know the man behind the myth as told by the only person who could really represent this image to the public and demonstrated how fame was the last thing he sought.
To Steve it was all about the Crocs and as such he used all monies gained through his television work to buy land to help protect endangered species around the world. Hopefully this book will encourage others to join behind not only Steves campaign but others in general to save more of the worlds animals. To sum up this book might best be left to Steve and a comment he probably would have said to Terri had he still been about now "Good on ya Mate," and remember "Crocs rule."
Like Steve's life, the whole book is an adventure, it's funny and sad and touching too and you really feel as though what you're reading is the closest thing to Steve writing the book himself.
If you loved Steve before, you'll love him even more as you discover how hard he worked and how passionate he was about his family and the things he believed in.
I was delighted to discover from the book that Steve Irwin was exactly what I thought he was, a wildlife warrior and a really lovely human being, who although his life was short, packed more in than most people would in several lifetimes.
I will probably read this book again and again in years to come and found it well written and captivating, despite obviously knowing what the ending would bring.
I really admire how the book was written and especially how Terri managed to tell her background and Steve's in an entertaining and engaging way.
I'd recommend this book to everyone, it's a fascinating story and the fact that it is all true just makes it even more amazing to read.
At the end of the book, Terri writes about how there were many more stories included before the book was edited down to it's current size, I for one would love to read more of their adventures and look forward to their future publication.
Whether you’re a fan of Steve Irwin or not, it’s well worth giving this a read just for the sheer amount of information you’ll learn about the animals that roam our planet. Who knows, perhaps you’ll become a wildlife warrior yourself by the time you’ve finished – there are certainly worse things to do with your life, as you’ll discover.
Terri’s writing is surprisingly decent, too – she might not be a born novelist, but she’s got a way with words that gets the job done in a way that helps you to empathise with Terri, Steve and the children, as well as the wildlife that they’ve dedicated their lives to protecting. You start to feel like a part of the family, not biologically perhaps but in the same way that Stevo’s good mate Wes became an honorary Irwin.
And at the end of the day, Terri had a much better reason for writing an autobiography than most other celebrities – it’s a fitting tribute to her dead husband, and a wonderful way to raise awareness of the sad plight of the crocodiles, cougars and other animals.
