However, my biggest shocks when reading of his exploits were nothing to do with the practicalities of his "feat", but:-
1. I was truly amazed at how he was able to conduct his escapades whilst holding down job(s). He must have had some VERY slack bosses!
2. I was amazed that he came out with his "poor old shark" routine. Seems he's another of these "they're misunderstood creatures, they seldom attack humans, if they do it's only 'coz they're mistaken, blah blah" types. Zzzz. However, in the next breath he's defending the wonderful dolphins which swam next to him for a while, to "protect him from sharks". Huh? Make your mind up, mate!
3. The last chapter or so made my stomach as bilious as he must have felt with the waves a fair few times. I had no trouble with him being proud of his achievement, and telling us so, but it was the wider implications of it which he wouldn't let up on. Over and over he preached how we can all do ANYTHING we want, how there are no limits to the human mind, how nothing is impossible if we want it bad enough, blah blah blah. I thought here we - another idiot! I wish he'd say that to the thalidomide boy who's always wanted to play soccer for England, or the girl with severe scoliosis who's always wanted to be a prima ballerina.
IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN....... EVER!
However 'his" "new" technique is someone else's- it is Total Immersion, developed by Terry Laughlin.
Even if you don't find straight comparisons with your life you will metaphorical reason to believe in what you dream can be. Don't dream you could. Believe you can and that you will!
