Great read (listen)...
This is a fascinating book from an inspirational author - it enables the entry level reader and expert to learn and enjoy his experiences and shared wisdom. He presents the information in a light and enjoyable manner and it is very easy to listen to - the equivalent of 'unputdownable'. I would strongly recommend it and will seek out his public speaking presentations at the RGS if possible. Looking forward (hopefully) to seeing his other titles on this site asap.
