4.0 out of 5 stars Great in parts, 23 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Outdoor Life (Kindle Edition)
I love Ray Mears's TV programmes, and looked forward to this autobiography. I really didn't take too much notice of the Why's and conjecture regarding Ray's reasons for writing the book, I was pleased he had, whatever the reason.

It starts really well, I enjoyed his description on Judo, and how that became a guiding principle for Ray even today. I have to admit the long passages describing various trips around the world were beginning to blur somewhat until Ray started to talk about his wife. Without giving too much away, the book turned in an instance, an real heartfelt account of the darkest time in Ray's life. It laid bare Ray's emotions in a brutally honest way.

I looked forward to the section on the man-hunt for Raul Moat and left the cynical view that this was the driver for the book in the first place. In the end, it was a insightful more into how the Police work than in how Ray assisted in concluding the hunt for Moat, but still very interesting.

It's a good read, I skip-read parts, and pored over every word in others - worth reading if you like Ray's work.
