I really looked forward to sailing across the Atlantic to Barbados in a yacht - until I read this book. NOT for the nervous first-time sailor, it's a compilation of hair-raising survival-at-sea true stories that will leave you wondering: "could I live on raw fish eyeballs for 76 days?" and other bewildering questions. On no account buy this for someone embarking on a sea journey of any duration: I'd even suggest people who take a ferry across the Thames should give it a miss. This book scares the bejeebus out of me and I love it.
