Quick review - not a bad read, particularly if you've got memories of Andy's mug (or tights!) being everywhere in the early 90s. The language is a bit odd at times, but reflects the conversational tone of the book. Andy's brutally honest about his shortcomings, and in general there's a good flow. I suspect it reads a lot like talking to Andy in the pub would sound - lots of tangents and little jokes, but the overall message gets through.

It's interesting to compare it to Jerry's Revelations, which really captures JM's intensity and drive. This book is a bit more rambling, but reflects AP's slightly more relaxed approach to climbing.

It's also worth pointing out that this is a hardcover, rather than the poxy softcover that most of the autobiographies are. This means it should last longer with heavy traffic, and not need reinforcing with Sika.

Thanks for the read Andy.
