When I acquired this book I was looking for stories about sailing, big waves etc. But it’s more than that. In fact it’s not really about that. It’s more about the freedom you get sailing and about the trials Lizzie has over come in her pursuit of adventure.

In some parts you ask why do that and others you want to get on a plane and save her. It’s surprisingly good and I really enjoyed it.

I’d recommend this book to anyone with either a passion for sailing or having a troubled life. Would buy again and listen again.

I didn’t realise I was a Futurist until I listened to this book on Preterism. It was interesting to know of the other argument to end days.

Unfortunately it is not an biased view of the scripture and only argues one side. I felt I needed a balanced opinion on some of the points so did more research and found the author had omitted arguments about key dates and events.

Although I didn’t finish the book as I felt it was not wholly accurate it was a good listen and well narrated. I would recommend listening to it as an alternative view on end days prophecy.

In terms of the story telling about crime cases I’d rate the book as good. However it’s about navigation and only really a few chapters cover this.

I bought this with a view to learn more about celestial navigation and although I’d say it did improve my knowledge marginally I don’t think it was enough.

Quite a lot of sales patter to buy more books.

I wouldn’t buy again but I will relisten to the relevant couple of chapters as they were well explained.

I enjoyed this book. It made both myself and my fellow sailors laugh several times as we drew similarities between Glenn's experiences and our own. If you're a sailor you will almost certainly relate to many of Glenn's tales. It's more of a story of doing it rather than winning trophies but let's face it if you're in the middle of the sea there isn't much to write about apart from waves, waves and more waves. I really hope Glenn brings out another book and he's still sailing. I admire him for giving it a shot and also for writing about it. He's been quite inspirational to break the monotony of the norm and just go for it. Also I've also double checked my impeller spares; thanks for that ;-)
