Publisher's Summary

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.

Two stories woven cleverly together

the story of one man's struggle with the ordinary things of childhood and early life woven in between the story of a man out of his depth in a hostile and alien world
