    1. What an adventure. Sir David opens with a history of how he got into televised animal stories, and recounts some of his early adventures, ending with a trip to Indonesia and their effort to hunt down the then elusive Komodo Dragon. I loved the detail, and I could really visualize what it must have been like to visit Indonesia at that time.

    2. A charming story from David Attenborough's youth, searching for Komodo dragons in Indonesia. Although much of it is quite dated (some of the cultural critiques, and the very idea that they were trying to capture animals to bring to the UK).

    3. Devoured the original print edition of this as a child. Now happily listening to David Attenborough narrate the audio version. Bought it for research purposes and am so so delighted to find it lives up to my childhood memories of it.

    4. David Attenborough is adorable. This delightful beach-read provides a facinating insight into his early career. It is inspiring to think of the random good fortune that led to his career.
