Normally I prefer to read, but being able to listen to a book during my 90+ minute daily commute has been a real lifesaver. I feel like that time is no longer wasted, and if the book is good enough I look forward to continuing it on my drive home.

    During the height of the blizzard of 1978, the tanker Global Hope floundered on the shoals off the Massachusetts coast. The Coast Guard dispatched a patrol boat, but was soon in as much trouble as the tanker. Then pilot boat captain Frank Quirk, hearing of the Coast Guard's troubles on his radio, decided to act.

    Great account of the great blizzard of '78, which resulted in 99 deaths. Focuses on the martime challenges that took place, expalining many of the issues that both the coast guard and civilan crafts faced. Very well written and excellent narration. Couldn't wait for my morning and evening commute to hear what happened next.
