This is not only interesting it is important. Written beautifully by one of our great scientists (winner of two Pulitzers). He discusses what is happening to our bioshpere, and what might and could happen considering man as a super organism. He has some hope.

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.
