  • Hard to read

    Although this book has the potential to be an interesting and worthwhile read, the sheer volume of grammatical errors and poorly constructed sentences that are often just phrases maker this book very difficulty to enjoy. I entirely blame the publisher rather than the author as they really should know better.

    Utter nonsense Steve Stone may well have been in Afghanistan but not as an operator, a bottle washer perhaps but not an operator. Two weeks in country to recover from a bullet wound I don't think so. Pakistan border 20 mins from Bastion I don't think so. To much rank referral. A total Walter Mitty character.

    One of the worst books I've ever read. To me this clearly rings out as a book written by a Walt, let alone the grammatical errors. Would not recommend this to anyone, ever. Save your cash and get a proper autobiography. Also incredibly short. Read it in about 3 hours, never gripped my intrigue once.

    Not a bad read, bit short and padded out. But grammar and punctuation was awful. Bit of proof reading needed.
  • Good read but awful spelling.

    As the title suggests, the book was a good read and very enjoyable but the lack of punctuation and poor spelling let it down a bit. I know I'm not the greatest having suffered with dyslexia all my life but either way, for the price I'd say its well worth a read. I really hope to find more books like this as the SAS is something I hold close to my heart.

    Afghan Heat was a really good read, fast paced and well written, good mixture of facts and information and a book that many will enjoy. The book seems to match up with known details of what the SAS are doing Afghanistan. The factual element is obvioulsy written by an author who knows his stuff and can convey it well to a non technical audience. Each chapter is a seperate discrete story. The book opens up with action before going on with how the author came to be in the SAS. Some chapters felt a little short. However, that may only be a small detail that is easily ovecome, with the gripping action blended in with various facts so really understand what is going on as well as leanring some intersting facts like how cheap and easily availablew the AK47 is. These sodliers are heros as all those out in Afghanistan. The fact that this book donates to Help For Heros is another plus point.

    Although the subject matter makes for compelling reading, the grammar and spelling is something akin to a primary school essay. The whole thing needs proof reading and correcting. Not really worth the money until it is corrected however some proceeds are going to help for heroes so it can't be all bad.
