This is one of the best Livingstone biographys in my opinion and I have read several of them. The author has a good understanding of Livingston's Christian motivations and recounts his life in a highly readable style. If you can't devote the time to reading Seaver's lengthier "David Livingstone - His Life and Letters" then read this one, better yet read them both. It will be time well spent.

Ross enjoys contrasting various views and assessments of Livingstone’s intentions with Livingstone’s own disclosure of his dreams, passions and plans. His familiarity with these writings allows him to reveal contrasts between Livingstone’s private feelings, confessed in his journals, and public statements moderated for acceptance by his British audience.

The cover doesn't look like much, but this book does a solid job on the life of Livingstone. My only critique is a lack of good maps. Livingstone was an explorer, therefore maps are of the essence. Wish there were more.

This work, featuring many new and nuanced insights, is a wonderfully written story of a very determined missionary and explorer. As the author so ably describes, our modern knowledge of David Livingstone is heavily influenced by the fact that, in death, he has been made the icon for many causes. His legacy has been put to the service of, for instance, British imperial aspirations. But as the author recounts, Livingstone's complexity defies any neat categorization.
Livingstone was possessed of a ferocious curiosity. He was born into a life of poverty, but became both a medical doctor and an ordained minister. He fathered a large family from whom, due to his travels, he was often away. Both his physical endurance, and his capacity to withstand pain were prodigious. His respect and admiration for African cultures was incomprehensible to his contemporaries. Witnessing firsthand the depredations of the slave trade, he devised strategies for development that, had they been heeded, provided a chance for leaving African cultures intact.
Livingstone mapped the unknown interior of Africa. His expeditions were remarkable both in the beauty of the places "discovered", and the grueling physical and consequent emotional demands on the explorers. During Livingstone's final expedition, the American journalist H.M. Stanley so famously "found" Livingstone. The meeting is replete with irony, and the context and effect of this meeting are very movingly described. Very moving, as well, is the story of Livingstone's death in Africa, and the transport, by loyal friends, of his body fifteen hundred miles to the coast.
