Didn't care for it. Expected it to be more like Tougias books about Coast Guard rescue but this a testimonial to one man who I didn't know so had no interest in the book. Would not recommend unless you know the gentleman who the book is written for.

Thought this was a very interesting story. I was in the Coast Guard, stationed at the Cape Cod Canal Coast Station in the 1970's and never heard about this incredible rescue. Again, very well written and informative. These guys were real heros! Not like the way they call everyone hero's nowadays, but REAL HERO'S,,
I just started reading it but it is very interesting.
