I haven't read many biographies, but this one definitely didn't impress me. To me it read more like a list of voyages and events, but with little to give me a real feel for Cook's personality. Hough, for me, doesn't really has much talent as a storyteller, and I was left with the feeling that so much more could have been done with the material. But the book has a lot of interesting material from various sources, so reading it is definitely not a waste of time.
