"Lenny McLean had the braun, Dave Courtney had the charm, but Geoff Thompson is in a class of his own." (FHM)
"This man is very, very hard. Buy his book if you know what's good for you." (Maxim)
I really am not sure where to start - this book - the story, the reading, everything about it is freaking amazing!
It's a gritty story of a very tough man. It's a story of a scared young boy and later man facing and conquering his fears. It's a story of a man chasing and realizing his dreams. It's a treatise on fear and adrenalin affects on a person. By the end of the book you just want to freaking meet this guy.
Just get the damn book already and listen to it. It really is that good. And the narrator ROCKED! Best read book I have listened to.
The narrator was excellent. He voice pulled me along the whole time I could feel the excitement like I was there. Not that this story needed it. It was a f#%^ing great story. Loved the true life inspiration and personal growth. Hit home!
Yes for a refresher on the life lessons and insight to real life violence.
The look at real life violence and how it really occurs.
You just have to love the British accent. Although an British to American dictionary would have been handy a few time :)
Great book. I would really recommend it to young males say 16 to 28 years old. One for the life lessons it offers and two for the insights to real life violence. He shows you the steps that confirmations take on in real life. If you know the steps, you can avoid the dance.
