As with most audiobooks read by the author, there are a few spaces where the same passage is read twice, or the author coughs and it is not edited out. However, it does not detract from this book because the author/reader has an excellent cadence as he tells his stories. Consider the book a series of shorts, as there is not a logical order to each story. This works well to stop things from bogging down. He is hitch hiking in India, then delivering sailboats, then living on an island, then back to owning a sail boat. Each story is bite sized and well written. Many of the author's escapades are not particularly interesting (being attacked by mosquito, for instance) yet his story-telling makes you want to hear more.
have some sort of chronological sequence.
It's ok. Story is very haphazard - goes from one story to a totally different one.
