Walking on Water, 22 Sept. 2008
One of the most exciting autobiographies I have ever read. I read until well after midnight for several nights and I truly had tears rolling down my face as I read the last few pages. Whether it was relief, tiredness,joy or sheer pleasure is arguable but his voyage was an incredible feat as was his determination to overcome his disability and lead a normal life. The way he has interlinked his life story with his voyage round Britain just made it impossible to put down. It is not just a book for sailors. It is not just a book to encourage the handicapped. It is a rattling good yarn. I both enjoyed and gained inspiration from it. It deserves to be a great "best seller".
