Don't listen while you're driving!

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this title. Our only 'mistake' was to listen while we were driving to our holiday destination. Ranulph Fiennes for all his physical exploits and world travels has a superbly dry way of engaging with his audience. As an employer I particulary liked his criteria for employing people on expeditions! Some of his travel tales, especially those with Dr Mike Stroud who is equally compelling in his public speaking, will have you in stitches - check out the arctic trip. We were forced to stop the car at one point for crying so hard with laughter - fortunately there wasn't much traffic! And all of this for a good cause - enjoy!

An extraordinary man with a very dry wit

This is a speech by the quintessentially English explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes. With a marvelously dry wit, he tells of his exploits - triumphs and troubles - on various dangerous expeditions to inhospitable regions, in particular both poles. A highly enjoyable listen.
