This book makes the biggest mistake possible for a treatise on the mystery of suffering: It adopts a tone so smug and self-assured that it cheapens the mytery it purports to explore.
This book is not extremely well-written, but the material is amazing. It covers a sailing race called Around Alone. 16 people set off to sail around the world single-handing 40 - 60 foot very fast boats in extremely gnarly conditions. There are some cool photos, but I felt like there were more interesting images from the race. However it may be unfair to ask someone sailing their boat through 80 foot swells to snap a picture as their boat turns sideways and surfs down a wave.
