  • Adrift: 76 Days Lost at Sea

    Story

    Before The Perfect Storm, before In the Heart of the Sea, Steven Callahan's Adrift chronicled one of the most astounding voyages of the century and one of the great sea adventures of all time. In some ways the model for the new wave of adventure books, Adrift is now an undeniable seafaring classic, a riveting firsthand account by the only man known to have survived for more than a month alone at sea, fighting for his life in an inflatable raft after his small sloop capsized.

    Gripping book. Amazing detailed and fascinating account of this guy's ordeal lost at sea. Highly recommended.

    After 20 years in Britain, Bryson returned to the U.S. and decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Georgia to Maine. This is his humorous, inspiring account.

    Jeff says: "Wonderful book, but hardly abridged"
    "Awesome!"
    Overall

    Great, captivating, hilarious book. Only downside is that this is abridged. Wish they would come out with the unabridged audiobook.

    Story

    When Dr. David Servan-Schreiber was diagnosed with brain cancer, it changed his life. Confronting what medicine knows about illness, the little known workings of the body's natural cancer-fighting capacities, and his own will to live, Servan-Schreiber found himself on a journey from disease and relapse into scientific exploration, and finally to health.

    Gary says: "Must Read for anyone with cancer concerns"
    "Life-changing book"
    Overall

    This book is a life changer. One of the best books I have ever read. The only weak spot, for me anyhow, was the end where he took a very humanistic perspective of healing and staying healthy, whereas I was hoping he would have attributed more to Christianity. But that's... my belief, not his. Otherwise, the book was fantastic!

  • Not Without Hope

    A witness to incredible heroism and unspeakable tragedy, Nick remained at sea for more than 40 hours, holding on, hoping against hope and clinging to the thought that he couldn’t bear to have his mother attend his funeral. Not Without Hope is much more than a story of survival. It is an inspiring story of friendship, resolve, and courage.

    Excellent book about an incredible quest to stay alive after a terrible boating accident. I really felt like I was there as these four football players struggled to stay alive in amazingly horrible conditions. Highly recommended.
