I'm a big fan of watching 'Man v Wild', or other shows with Bear Grylls on TV. The shows themselves are very entertaining, but I didn't know much about the guy who stars in them. When this book came up as an Amazon Daily Deal I thought it was a good...more

"Nice review. Yes, there is a lot more going on in this book that one would assume from the title and the blurb on the back. "

Mickey Spillane
“Nobody reads a book to get to the middle.”
Mickey Spillane

Kurt Vonnegut
“Another Kilgore Trout book there in the window was about a man who built a time machine so he could go back and see Jesus. It worked, and he saw Jesus when Jesus was only twelve years old. Jesus was learning the carpentry trade from his father.

Two Roman soldiers came into the shop with a mechanical drawing on papyrus of a device they wanted built by sunrise the next morning. It was a cross to be used in the execution of a rabble-rouser.
Jesus and his father built it. They were glad to have the work. And the rabble-rouser was executed on it. So it goes.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Terry Pratchett
“What kind of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.”
Terry Pratchett, Going Postal
