This is a wonderful memoir from Alec McDonald, written in an easy going light-hearted style. From his schoolboy challenges and forays into rock climbing and adventurous travels, then onto University and his eventual career with MI6, it was a page-turner from the start. An interesting life story, well told, and definitely one to recommend to your bookworm friends or even reluctant young adult readers who may be inspired to start an adventure of their own. Highly recommended.
