This book is his story of the latter. In parts hugely moving, but for the most part a hilarious romp hilghlighting the nonsense of anglo-franco politics, the quirks of the sea and general chaos a sea-going bath can cause.
It's a must read for 2008 and you won't be disappointed. I particular liked the annexes at the end of the book. His cocktail list is pretty spectacular! Enjoy!
That said, the incredible hardships, kindness and disasters he encountered on the way make fantastic reading, especially when seen through the eyes of the Queen's nuttiest subject.
Read this, and you'll feel the ups and downs of Tim's journey, helping him to pull every stroke, swallowing as much sea water as he has, and chatting with the seals like a natural.
Excellent book, excellent read, and well done Tim. A belter.
