About the Author

James Adair read Modern History at the University of St Andrews. He worked for two years as the editor of the Alderney Journal, perhaps the world's smallest paid-for newspaper, wrote a column in the Guernsey Press and wrote freelance articles for The Times' Books and News sections. To finance his dream of rowing an ocean he took a job as a shipbroker with HSBC in London. In the aftermath of his and Ben's incredible journey, he has returned to shipbrokerage.

Reviews

'A challenge like few others - one that requires total commitment and perseverance in the face of Mother Nature often at her most terrifying. I have huge respect for this brave duo. They knew that the blisters and pain wouldn't last forever! An epic achievement'

-- Bear Grylls

'Funny and terrifying'

-- Hattie Morahan * The Independent *

'A rousing tale of an adventure that most of us could scarcely dream about'

* The Canberra Times *

'An heroic journey'

* The Daily Mail *

'a most readable account of real adventure by brave men'

-- John Blashford-Snell

'This is a truly splendid book, reminiscent, in its celebration of the triumph of cheerful resolve over incompetence, of Eric Newby's A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush. It is a book without artifice of any kind, very funny and with the ring of many appalling truths'

-- Sam Llewellyn

'an excellent read: spirited and funny but also thoughtful, touching and well written'

-- Stephen Taylor

'This is an outstanding book brilliantly written and I very highly recommend it'
