An amazing survival story. This book made me realize to what lengths a person will go to hang onto hope and life even in the face of pain, loneliness, and long odds. I don't think I could do it, even with Steven Callahan's knowledge and physical abilities. But, you never really know unless the test comes. This book is a page-turner despite the foregone conclusion, and never too unpleasant to read despite the extreme suffering, which I really think is due to the author's straightforward mix of well-written details and personal insights.
