They had pushed themselves physically, psychologically, and emotionally to the limit, surviving without water rations for two days and even losing the few clothes they had in a freak wave. They also capsized, hallucinated, wept, fought, played games, grew beards, nursed blisters, and rowed 2,930 miles. They will never be the same.

How on earth this crossing ever came to happen is beyond me. It shouldn't have worked and yet together they pulled it off. Ben is a natural story teller, James less so, but they both speak honestly, openly and from the heart. I very much enjoyed listening to their individual yet joint account of an incredibly challenging event. I am very impressed with them both.
Couldn't stop listening to this well told story,. What a great adventure told as it was missing nothing out
Both Ben and James as they both told an unabridged story as it was
All of it
As both men were very honest about their emotions I laughed when they laughed and cried when they cried
