This is an excellent book for beginner sailors.

The story itself is very readable and engrossing, I really enjoyed it and it's an account that will stick in your mind long after you finish the book. There is no doubt left that Sir Robin Knox-Johnson is an inspiration.
For me the unexpected side-benefit of reading this book (which was in my local library) was that it really helped me get to grips with mystical nautical terms, boat and sail practicalities and weather issues during my intrduction to sailing.
Much more enjoyable than plowing through my RYA text books!
