Review:

'There is nobody alive in whose company I would sooner spend five hours’ -- Auberon Waugh

From the Back Cover:

Yet Being Someone Other is the most revealing book that Laurens van der Post wrote about his extraordinary and eventful life, and the most far-reaching. It is a distillation of the many experiences that moved him at the deepest level of his heart and mind and made him the person he was.

The story starts with his childhood in southern Africa, and his passionate interest in the sea, an interest which led him, as a young man, to take part in two voyages of special significance. The first was on a whaling ship, with a Norwegian captain whose values unexpectedly nourished his own. The second was a long voyage to Japan. Both are absorbing tales of action and adventure, and, more than that, they are tales of personal discovery.
