Simon Weston came into the public eye in Britain through a BBC documentary that showed him piecing together his life after suffering severe burns while on military duty in the Falkland Islands. He has since become a motivational speaker and the founder of Weston Spirit, a youth charity. MOVING ON begins as Weston describes his return to the Falklands to meet the Argentinian soldier responsible for his injuries and the deaths of many fellow fighters. Gareth Armstrong narrates with a voice that is both ordinary and extraordinary, capturing the upheaval in Weston's life and his triumphs over it. Although Weston doesn't read his book, his strengths as a motivator shine through. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
