The title will for sure be greatly appreciated by all lovers of sea and sailing, as it tells the story of the brilliant travel of the author and his companions on board a sailboat with the intention to explore the new sea route. The voyage they were planning to take had a history of numerous incidents – more than a thousand, including the groundings and explosions, ship collisions and so many others, up to the sinking, and that statistics covers only the period from the year 1999 to 2009.

Note that the author himself did not have any seagoing experience at the time when their voyage started! The narrative is presented with the nice humor and will be read with pleasure. According to the numerous reviews, this one is a perfect sample of the good writing, and this is what gained this title worldwide popularity.

In addition to the voyage details, the author also described the people and communities they did meet, and all interesting facts and events. The readers will find this volume providing a good insight into a way of life of the people of the subject part of the world. This is something not discussed in due details in any of the titles available today so it definitely makes the book worth reading.
