I love books. Love to read them, listen to them, and build my stash of them.
I chose this story because of the topic, which is always of interest to me. I was not disappointed in the story, although the narrating could have been better. Anthony Ferguson's accent and voice are lovely, but he paused in the wrong places many times, so occasionally changed the meaning of some sentences without realizing it. Even so, I would recommend Whatever You Do, Don't Run for its truth, humour, breath-holding scenes, and entertainment value.
I read this book while traveling around Botswana and thought it was a lovely addition to my trip. After going on a few safaris it's easy to relate to his stories, descriptions of characters/tourists, and adrenaline involved in suddenly seeing animals in your path. The stories are light hearted and entertaining and they give insight to life and perspective as a guide.
I listened to this on my way to South Africa for a Safari. While it doesn't play out as one story, just a series of small experiences he author had, it was a lot of fun.
I thoroughly enjoyed the anecdotal narrative, and found myself laughing out loud many times. As someone who worked for several years in the tourism industry, I completely identified with Peter's experience with certain guests, which made it that much more fun to listen to.
This book is entertaining and educational. It is also filled with hilarious stories about a young man with a love for animals who worked as a tour guide in Africa.You will not go wrong with this book. I hope Peter Allison will write more books in the future.

This book made me laugh out loud!
I hope that Anthony Ferguson will narrate many books in the future. He is great at making the story come to life.
Never too busy for a good book!
My purchase for this listen was based on a love for animals and the book's title . In retrospect I should have browsed through the reviews first. I just found it dull.
Charming, sometimes heart-stopping tales of an African Safari guide. I enjoyed every moment of it - the stories, the educational bits, and the author's self-effacing humour.
It was a great story and the humor added a lot
Would like Peter Allison's other books in audio format
