What an extraordinary account of 2 men’s journey across the Atlantic. Pretty much unprepared for this life changing challenge of the Atlantic Rowing Race, Ben Fogle and James Cracknell did not even know each other that well when they embarked on this journey. This book tells in raw detail the experiences they went through, highs and lows, near death experiences, blisters and sores, tears and laughter. This is a real story of endurance and courage and keeps you gripped from the first page to last.
