Not Quite World's End book.

In Not Quite World's End, Simpson offers a lively and upbeat look at the challenges and the changes the world has gone through in his life and long career. In it, he looks at the world and takes the perhaps surprising view that it's actually not nor will be the end of the world.

JOHN Cody Fidler-Simpson CBE has reported on 36 wars in a 40-year career, has survived a mortar blast and sustained a shrapnel wound in his hip from a skirmish in Afghanistan. Simpson is unflappable. The road trip from the airport into the centre of Baghdad involves nerve-racking encounters with suicide bombers and snipers; he took a helicopter once and it was attacked by a rocket. Why does he keep doing it? What drives him to keep seeking out these dangerous hot spots? We are not told outright but there are a few clues.

As the BBC's man in Beijing, Bucharest, Belgrade, Baghdad and elsewhere, John Simpson has been a familiar face in the world's conflict zones

As the BBC's man in Beijing, Bucharest, Belgrade, Baghdad and elsewhere, John Simpson has been a familiar face in the world's conflict zones. This is a collection of 'traveller's tales' from home and abroad by Simpson, who winningly describes what he does as 'making a living out of not being very sensible'. Unsurprisingly, the man who once claimed to have 'liberated Kabul' along with his BBC crew can get a bit carried away. There are plenty of ramblings and repetitions.
