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.

As a winter Floridian who lives just a half hour south of where these men launched on Feb 28, 2009, I remember well the local news story that became national headlines. I also recall the weather. Cold -windy- nasty! I recall telling my wife those nights, " I can't imagine being in the water on a night like tonight". I never dreamed there would be any survivors. That makes Nick Schyler's story all the more miraculous to me. I felt that cold front come through on land, I cannot imagine what it would have been like in the Gulf.
The narrative was a bit long and repetitious in places but then so were those 40 hours I suppose. I enjoyed the behind the scenes portions of the book and would have enjoyed expansion of the story from those perspectives. All in all a well written book, with excellent narration, looking past a couple of small mispronunciations of local names.
