"For me, 'The Years Thunder By' occupies a space in the unique band of books which evoke such a desire to re-calibrate and explore, alongside the likes of 'Into the Wild' and 'Barbarian Days'.""A truly engaging account of heroism, adventure and a journey to a place within. Where passion and intention meet action, across an ocean. Incredible read." "Riveting story, gorgeously told. Makes me not only want to buy a boat and sail away, but makes me long for a world with more people as special as Nick Jaffe. As sensitive, thoughtful, wise an author as you'll find. Can't wait to see what he writes next!" "Not only is the author's accomplishment an amazing feat, he touches base on many of life's important lessons. This was one of the few books I had difficulty putting down. I've now passed it on to my 16 year old son. It's sure to open his eyes and mind."
