This sentence is allso taken from Bill Bryson's A SHORT HISTORY OF NEARLY EVERYTHING:
Tiring of that, he decided to adopt
the life of an adventurer and for the next quarter century traveled extensively through Asia
and South America with a succession of attractive female assistants whose jobs were
inventively described as “historian and technicist” or “assistant in fish problems.”
Can 'Tired of' be used in place of 'Tiring of' and without changing too much of the meaning of the sentence?
Many many thanks.
