If you've read Ben and James' account of their gruelling row across the Atlantic you already have a good idea of what to expect from this book. With each page the narrative is volleyed back and forth between presenter come adventurer Ben and world class althete James. Their accounts of their brutal slog across Antarctica are always honest, heartfelt and as much about understanding each other as understanding themselves in their effort to push their physical limits. The fact that they are relative novices when it comes to Arctic survival is so appealing as it makes you believe maybe one day you too might be able to risk it all and experience the ends of the world. Thoroughly enjoying read despite having only recently finished another Antarctica expedition book. My only grumble was that it would have been interesting to hear a bit of narrative from the third member of the team, Ed, particularly in the last third of the book. Looking forward to continuing reading more of Fogle's varied (and also a little crazy) adventures.
