    i liked it

    being ex-military I understand that they didnt put in finer detials about how they cleared room ect. it was there over all stratgie this book give you a inside view off. reading this is probably the closest you will get to knowing the SASR with out joining.
    the main review fits the book perfectly, and you get a few recount of the diggers them selfs. what more could you possibly want?

    A touch too much self glorification

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, it praises how good the Australian SAS is over and over again. There is no real 'heros journey' or great loss to over come in this book. Every character is so 'good' and 'unreal' that it becomes one big 'aren't we 'f#*king awesome.

    What was most disappointing about Ian McPhedran’s story?

    The criticism is one sided. If there is any negative, then it is outside the SAS. There is no real insight into this secretive organisation and no history to speak of. I think Ian McPhedran is in love with the SAS.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narrated by Peter Byrne who can't break his style from saying only a few words at a time even if the sentence needs to run through. Very tedious. His accents are clique and swearing seemed fake.

    Could you see The Amazing SAS being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Perhaps an Anime Cartoon with any of the actors playing James Bond as the characters.

    Any additional comments?

    If you want a book to portray the emotion and hardship then Peter Fitzsimons is your author, if you want the history; Paul Ham, if you want a level handed review of the subject then get David McCullough. Entertaining then Michael Palin is your man. Ian McPhedran should stick to writing for his master, Murdock.

    Not as interesting as the title suggests!

    The narrator seemed like he was SHOUTING to the listeners! "...this is a great unit you have got to believe me...!" The writer seemed to be trying to get the world to know how GREAT these men & their training IS/ARE...!

    I have no doubt SAS is a
    GREAT military unit & if I were younger and a citizen of Australia I would join TODAY!

    Very GOOD BOOK FOR RECRUITING!

    Worthless

    I agree with the first review. I can't believe this book is so long and says absolutely nothing. No specifics whatsoever. Just generalities.

    Don't waste your money

    This book is not worth the credit. You don't get a good sense of the SAS training, selection course or anything worth while. You will hear about a couple of operations that contains no specail tactics.

    E.

    Great insight into Australia's special operation.

    these next words are to meet the minimum 20 word requirement.
