    Just finished Dave's book for the first time.
    A couple of years ago, I started the book but never finished it. I figured it was time to go back to the beginning and read it cover to cover.

    In my opinion, I absolutely loved the book. It was nice to read about the sides of Dave that we don't normally see. One highlight for me was the stories about his trips to the Amazon and to the Himalayas. He is an adventurer for sure. Not many of us would dare to go to those places. But Dave, he thrives on it. The Reunion Blues chapter was interesting as well. It's unfortunate that it happened that way.

    Thumbs up on an enjoyable book!

    I loved the book also. Once I started it, I had a hard time putting it down. [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    It shows another side of Dave that isn't always projected in his "sound bite" interviews.

    Some people don't like the way it rambles and skips around, but I liked it...almost like listening to a story in person instead of just reading words on a page. [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]

    You can definitely imagine Dave saying that stuff. It's written exactly the way he talks. I loved it, and I've re-read it loadsa times. Probably due for another go soon actually...

    Never read it (I'm kind of holding out for finding a hardcover of it) but from the description you give it almost sounds like he must have talked into a tape recorder and then just had someone type it out verbatim for him.
