This was an straight up adventure. A great read full of honesty and wisdom. Read cover to cover. A great story of a boy becoming a man. Growing wise both fun and painful. A great book!

Inspiring story with a wealth of emotional detail. The writer takes you there, not just to the story of a voyage but to great internal transformation
First book I've read in years that I literally couldn't put down - great story (and all true!) and great writing style; I'm looking forward to Neil's next book.

Great writing and highly engaging. I look forward to his continued musing about boats and life. He does not preach but instead seems to be sitting with you in a pub telling his story in an honest and thoughtful way. A wonderful read

A great read. I couldn't put it down and finished it in one session. If only I had read this a few years ago......
