This was a privileged peek in to the life of the real James Herriott. I read (and re-read) the James Herriott books decades ago crying with laughter - mostly on crowded commuter trains. Normally I avoid biographies, as opposed to autobiographies, as the writer has usually researched many facts and simply reproduces them dryly in a book. This biography is quite different because of the author's close relationship with the subject. My only slight criticism is I really wish the author, Jim Wight, had referred to his parents as Mum and Dad instead of Joan and Alf throughout the book. This touch would, I feel, have completed the warmth within the book for the author's father. This book cannot have less than 5 stars1 .

I love James Herriot books as did my dad, but always felt that he himself was a mystery. This book written by his son fills all those unanswered questions in a way that Alf probably couldn't and wouldn't. A must read for Herriot fans. Well written, the son is cut from the same writing cloth it seems
