[Read by Simon Vance] ''I have had a life which, for variety and romance, could, I think, hardly be exceeded. I have known what it was to be a poor man and I have known what it was to be fairly affluent. I have sampled every kind of human experience. I have known many of the most remarkable men of my time. I have had a long literary career after a medical training which gave me the MD of Edinburgh…I have traveled as Doctor to a whaler for seven months in the Arctic and afterwards in the West Coast of Africa. I have seen something of three wars: the Sudanese, the South African and the German. My life has been dotted with adventures of all kinds. Finally, I have been constrained to devote my latter years to telling the world the final result of thirty-six years' study of the occult…Such is the life which I have told in some detail in my Memories and Adventures.'' --Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

I had looked forward to reading the autobiography of Conan Doyle, but unfortunately, there are some serious problems with the book. There are multiple little diamonds scattered throughout the book, which distract from the text; there are no pictures, even though space was allocated for them; and there was no detailed introduction, even though advertisement mentioned one. The correction of these would make for an excellent autobiography.

Paperback edition arrived today. Almost every page is seriously flawed with question marks inserted in small triangles that appear within the lines of text ! Impossible to keep a train of thought. No publisher information ! AMAZON SHOULD PULL THIS PAPERBACK EDITION IMMEDIATELY.

I have been looking for this book for years ... finally found it. Sorry to say that this edition is virtually illegible due to so many incomplete sentences, etc. ... little diamonds with question marks everywhere make this book a complete waste.

First of all let me give you a product description as not much is provided with the item.The book is about 415 pages,a big,black leather covered one.It doesn't have a cover photogaph and looks like the library editions of the victoria era novels.As it is a reprint of the 1924 edition it does not contain the last chapter "up to date",which doyle added later to the revised edition of 1930.But as it was an "addition",i don't think it matters much ,and had any organic link to the original edition.The book is expensive,but it looks so gorgeous that it is almost an event,and therefore a collector's item.
Doyle lived a life of many adventures and this book chronicles all of them.Although it hesitates sometimes as it goes back it is still a fascinating account of the great man's life, in his own words.It gives us the magical charm of being able to know about sherlock holmes from the mouth of his own creator.The various adventures of doyles life are described with the usual storyteller's skill.The humourous prose of doyle makes it an unforgettable experience.
Every autobiography is in a way or other biased.The reader can read Teller of Tales: The Life of Arthur Conan Doyleby daniel stashower,the best biography in my opinion,for a more modern approach.
