'He made it from London to New Zealand. Yet more amazing, he sounds like a decent, modest witty guy.'
'Genuinely funny... easy-to-read and hard-to-put-down... it's unremitting and utterly addictive.'
'Smith flies, sails, rides and begs his way across the globe.'
'I really enjoyed the book and have been spreading the word. Amazing.'
(Iain Morris, TV Producer (creator, The Inbetweeners))

(Martin Kelner, columnist for The Guardian)
'Smith is one of our true British eccentrics and should be saluted. He is fearless and possibly quite mad.'
(Alex Lester BBC Radio 2
