Held captive from January 1987 to November 1991, for much of the time in solitary confinement, Terry Waite wrote his autobiography in his head. Here is his own heart-rending account of an existence robbed of companionship and of emotional, physical, and mental stimulation. He describes how his recollections of life from childhood onwards helped him endure a life of monotony and fear in captivity and reveals the inner strengths, which enabled him to survive his captors' often savage treatment. He tells of his resolve never to have any regrets, any false sentimentality, and any self-pity.

Taken on Trust is a deeply moving self-portrait of the man behind the headlines. It has become one of the classic accounts of man's survival at the limits of human endurance. Read by the author.

    " This is truly a story of survival. If Terry can survive 4 years in solitary confinement, the rest of us can survive anything. I skimmed through the history part of his story quite a lot because I was more interested in the hostage story. It was a good book. "

    " A chilling tale of egregious naivety. Will God save you in a serious pickle? Answers in [The Sparrow]. A big box of books might just be your salvation. "

    " Just a different view than Terry Andersons. I don't know which I like better. "

    " Not a typical book for a seven-year-old girl, but I loved it. "
