Publisher's Summary

A four-time Academy Award nominee, twice for writing and twice for acting, Ethan Hawke has starred in the films Dead Poets Society, Reality Bites, Gattaca, and Training Day as well as Richard Linklater's Before Sunrise trilogy and Boyhood. He is the author of the novels The Hottest State and Ash Wednesday.
'Never announce you are a Knight, simply behave as one. You are better than no one, and no one is better than you'.
When Sir Thomas Lemuel Hawke was a boy, his grandfather taught him how to be a knight. Now, on the eve of a battle from which he fears he may not return, Sir Thomas writes a letter to his children, so that he may pass on all his hard-won lessons, deepest aspirations and most instructive failures.
Full of adventure and wit, the letter provides a guide for living a good and noble life - a reminder that without a little agony none of us would bother to learn a thing; that we must work together as brothers or perish together as fools; that a friend loves you because you are true to yourself, not because you agree with him. And, most importantly, it shows that there is no obstacle that enough love cannot move.

A nice book

This book was a pleasant and easy listen which I can say I enjoyed. I think the noble messages it puts across makes for some good life lessons in general and the narrator did a good job of keeping it interesting throughout.

I do think that the format could have done with making each moral tale much longer and fleshed out though. Like the story about the two wolf brothers could have been something to really bring out the writers obvious skills in descriptive story telling, but ended up being disappointingly short lived, as were most of the other tales.

Overall a nice book which is well worth a listen.
