It is actually pretty well written, and takes you back to his childhood in England, later traveling around Australia and England, and includes a few chapters on a sailing adventure. It does become rather frustrating reading about his repeated episodes of "quitting drinking", stopping to have just one beer after work and ending up blacking out at 4 am, and then denial that he has a drinking problem. Over and over. This goes on for years, affecting 2 marriages. I felt like I was looking at some of my acquaintances and hope they finally realize they do need help. 700g, 490pp Faults? small corner bumps.
