Good, but not quite as good as the reviews, 29 Oct. 2011
I read the reviews in the newspapers which led me to buy this book. Although it was good, it didn't quite live up to the energy of the reviews that it got; the best bits were quoted in the reviews themselves. Being a similar age as the author I had an expectation that I would find a lot in common with him and his story. This was limited for me. Would I recommend it? Yes. Would I pick it up again and dip into passages and chapters because it left an impression on me? No.
