    "Don't listen while you're driving!"

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this title. Our only 'mistake' was to listen while we were driving to our holiday destination. Ranulph Fiennes for all his physical exploits and world travels has a superbly dry way of engaging with his audience. As an employer I particulary liked his criteria for employing people on expeditions! Some of his travel tales, especially those with Dr Mike Stroud who is equally compelling in his public speaking, will have you in stitches - check out the arctic trip. We were forced to stop the car at one point for crying so hard with laughter - fortunately there wasn't much traffic! And all of this for a good cause - enjoy!

    "Inspiration"

    An amazing inspirational talk by the very modest and surprisingly witty Sir Ranulph Fiennes.
    The man is an understated legend.
    Highly recomended.

    "Ranulph and the stiff upper"

    It's his job. That's all. So Sir Ranulph goes unsupported over the Antarctic Continent. He is the epitome of understatement which provides us with the space to join him. He is my forever Hero

    I started listening to audio books on a killer commute for my job and got hooked. Now local again, I listen whilst on evening or W/E walks

    "such a shame it was so short"

    very very close to the top


    What other book might you compare An Evening with Ranulph Fiennes to, and why?

    it's a very short audiobook as it is him giving a talk, so cant compare it

    not listened to any other books, but i am going to look them up now


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    short but hilarious


    Any additional comments?

    very very funny and interesting book, basically a talk that he has given on evening explaining where he has come from. very humorous.

    "A different world"

    Absolutely loved this. I got an insight into a completely different world. I was ready for the "unendurable hardship bit", but not for the way Fiennes approaches his expeditions. And his delivery is very individual: a touch rambling, but all the better for it, and laced with very dry wit.

    "So very British"

    Inspiring and very funny. This talk gives a very entertaining insight into the mind of a very driven and focussed man. A quite extraordinary person who has achieved quite extraordinary things.
    Brilliant. I absolutely loved listening to it and would highly recommend it to everyone.
