If you have anything more than a passing interest in the endevours of individuals to push themselves beyond where man has gone before; buy this book !

This is the story of a modest man who has been behind some of the most famous adventurers and record breakers of the 20th century.

He knows the stories, the hardships and the challenges because he was there, making things work !

A great read and some fantastic photographs too !

An Adventure Story 3 April 2012
By Dave Bussen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
You expect this book to be full of great engineering tales. What you don't expect is the "impossible to put down" adventure story that John has written. I lost no small amount of sleep over this book as I couldn't put it down and go to bed. On top of the fun to read stories, the book is chock full of beautiful and interesting high quality pictures from all over the planet. Most highly recommended! Dave

Jet Blast 19 May 2008
By Thomas S. Mackie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I was fortunate to have met John Ackroyd and talked with him about his ballooning adventures. He is a real adventurer of the likes of Steve Fosset who he had built balloons for to fly around the world.
The book is very large and makes a nice coffee table addition.
