Light rubbing on the corners of the dustjacket; price intact; no interior markings. This is the true story of the CEO of a major multi-national corporation who said to hell with life at the top and rebelled against his perfect success. His first step into adventure was to buy a bicycle. After cycling every day before breakfast, he rode to Florida, then across Canada. But the bicycle wasn't quite enough. A solo sail around the world might do it... so he sailed from the East Coast and out across the Atlantic.... First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+/Very Good+. 8vo. Author's First Book.
