If you only know the Dakar from Charlie Boorman (of Long Way Round and Long Way Down fame alongside Ewan Macgregor), read this also. Hacking is an experienced, pro-level off-road racer who faced serious challenges in his quest to become the first Canadian to finish the Dakar rally. And he did it as a privateer, without big sponsorship.
If you like adventure travel/gearhead/sport/trans-cultural stories, you'll love this one. I'll definitely re-read it many times
Keep in mind that this is put together in an almost diary style, so don't expect a literary masterpiece.
