Publisher's Summary

Tall tales, all true, about guns, bombs, car chases, spiders, exotic locales, men in uniform, and dancing girls - with deadpan delivery and a social conscience. "I remember the advertisement to join the Army. It asked for guys who were fit, committed, tough, volunteer parachutists, comfortable in the ocean, and mature. As a surfer, that sounded like me - except for the mature bit."
Nathan Mullins is an ex-cop, ex-soldier, ex-security consultant, and an Australian Aid International volunteer, so he's experienced all sorts of dangerous stuff involving guns, explosions, surgical procedures, combat, sword-play, rioting, and other potentially life-threatening behaviors all over the world. He has been lucky to survive his assignments - and hijinks - so he decided to share a few cautionary tales so everyone else can learn from his near misses.

I was looking forward to this book as being a list of anecdotes and stories, but unfortunately I was left disappointed. It really didn't live up to the billing. The stories are ok, but there is nothing in there that really made me feel wow! Nathan is obviously really proud of his charity work - and rightly so. But there aren't enough cliff hanger stories in the book to get me really excited. True tales from war zones and other disasters they may be.. but not really enough to make want to recommend this as and action read.
