Another great adventure! I find reading on my iPhone allows me to finish books very quickly, this is probably the first book I've read in under 24 hours in quite a while. Definitely a page-turner, though I could have done without some of the "spiritual connection to the sea" stuff. This guy was not a born and raised sailor or anything, just a trust fund kid who loved to sail. It felt forced and hokey. That said, the survival details and diagrams of the various stills, water collectors, and fishing equipment were very interesting.
