I have known the Bennett family 50 years and helped with some boat preparation for this adventure. Without Dick & Pat's careful preparation the trip would not have been successful. Their mingling with the local people at each harbor, provided in this book, provides a glimpse of the everyday life around the world. It took more intestinal fortitude to do the trip than I have.

Since I had seen some of the information with colored pictures, the only comment I have, is it would have been nice to have colored photo's included but the book is a great read as printed.

The adventures of Our Pleasure is a page turner. Mr. Bennett's tales of the high seas and dodgy ports will make everyone yearn for a life at sea. No doubt on the NYT best seller list soon.

This book offers detailed insight into the preparation, costs, trials and tribulations of world sailing. Readers will find this book a chronicle of sailing travels to faraway places. For people who like adventure, to hear about perilous situations, to read about idyllic island paradises, to read firsthand accounts of sailing on calm, starlit nights, you will enjoy reading this book. Ocean sailing can be a rather risky business, but reading about it from an armchair, you can enjoy the adventure without the risk.

I have yet to read Richard's book simply because my wife was awarded 'first read'. As she reads I constantly hear "You must listen to this" I'm then treated to another hair raising 'how they survived the seven seas'. Their land travels while not as dangerous are equally exciting. This is an adventure of a lifetime which I enjoy without getting my feet wet.
