Great overview of the real life events that inspired some of the greatest sea stories of all time. This book has motivated me to go back and re-read some of the various authors novels with a greater insight on how closely they are based actual events and experiences. Plus it has introduced to many works I'd never heard of.
Very enjoyable, interesting and nicely read. Lots of surprises and plenty of twists and turns. I enjoyed it greatly and it made me want to go out and rediscover a few of the authors featured.

For a long time I have been looking for a book about the sea that was not laced with jingoism but that gave a good sense of life on the high seas at the time of the tall ships and other sailing vessels. This book met all my needs and kept me enthralled first to last. It is beautifully read and therefore very easy to listen to. Highly recommended.
