I have never read a book that has made me feel so many different emotions as this one.I cried with laughter and with sadness. what an amazing man. this book is about an adventure that secretly we would all love to attempt, but maybe only dream about.i could not put this down and pulled a sickie to stay in bed and read this lol. this man and his story changed my life.one day i will do all the things i have dreamed about thanks to Tom Neale. whenever i feel down i pick up this book and read. i will treasure this little book forever.............But of course that is just my opinion.
