I read all the books about single-handed sailing I come across. This one is well-written, but not as compelling as some. Perhaps that's because much of it is backstory, and the actual single hand crossing of the Atlantic isn't particularly eventful. There is a lot of technical detail which would be of more interest to those who actually have some ocean sailing experience. I actually read it back in 2012 - but forgot. It took me about two-thirds of the narrative for me to remember reading it before. Maybe I'm just getting old ......
