Tall tales, all true, about guns, bombs, car chases, spiders, exotic locales, men in uniform, and dancing girls - with deadpan delivery and a social conscience. "I remember the advertisement to join the Army. It asked for guys who were fit, committed, tough, volunteer parachutists, comfortable in the ocean, and mature. As a surfer, that sounded like me - except for the mature bit."
Nathan Mullins is an ex-cop, ex-soldier, ex-security consultant, and an Australian Aid International volunteer, so he's experienced all sorts of dangerous stuff involving guns, explosions, surgical procedures, combat, sword-play, rioting, and other potentially life-threatening behaviors all over the world. He has been lucky to survive his assignments - and hijinks - so he decided to share a few cautionary tales so everyone else can learn from his near misses.

How to amputate a leg?!?
I don't know I have not read the print version. I have actually now bought the print version for my daughters boyfriend as I think he'll enjoy it .
Very funny book , dry humour brilliantly read by David Treddinick, brought all the intonations to life.
Lead character which I presume is the author.
There were several poignant sections especially when he was in the police, but the one I will mention is when he and his colleague returned with the grandfather ensuirng that the boys leg was not amputated.
Wasn't sure what to expect when I purchased this book. I found it entertaining and very funny in some places. The book clicked with my sense of humour.
A great listen
