A wonderful true life adventure. Hard to put down and well written. It is a great study in human nature. You get insights in why some undertake these ordeals. You have favorites and root for a winner. A fun and insightful read.

A compelling chronicle of courage and adventure at sea follows nine sailors on their historic 1968 attempt to sail around the globe non-stop--a voyage that would result in madness, failure, and death for all but one.
