From Booklist

The surviving records of Henry Hudson's four voyages of 1607-10 are apparently scant but provided enough information to be used in a previous history of his explorations (Donald Johnson's Charting the Sea of Darkness, 1992). Sandler, author of dozens of travel guides, converts the Hudson documentation into a travelogue to several of Hudson's haunts. He traveled somewhat more comfortably than Hudson did, embarking on a cruise ship to Spitzbergen, driving up the Hudson River Valley, and flying to Hudson Bay. Healthily quoting the mariner's logbooks to contrast travel then and now, Sandler also avails himself of the four centuries of history these places have experienced since Hudson sailed by, integrating nuggets of fact with what people have to say about Hudson. Some are quite loquacious on the subject, such as the captain of a replica of Hudson's ship Half Moon. Idiosyncratic, definitely interesting, Sandler will snare the travel/exploration set.

Bestselling author Corey Sandler has been a storyteller all his life. He began as a reporter for a small-town daily newspaper and went on to cover two national Presidential campaigns and become a correspondent for The Associated Press.

He has written more than 300 books on history, sports, travel, computers, and business; several of his titles have become national bestsellers. He has appeared as a guest on NBC’s “Today” show, CNN, National Public Radio, and The Travel Channel.

Earlier in his career, his experience as a reporter for Gannett Newspapers and The Associated Press included covering four national political conventions. He moved on from daily journalism to become one of the pioneers of computer magazine publishing and books, serving as the first Executive Editor of "PC Magazine".

His fascination with the mystery of explorer Henry Hudson took him on a year-long, 25,000-mile journey to England, the North Pole, and deep into Canadian wilderness areas accessible only by boat or bush plane. "Henry Hudson Dreams and Obsession" retraces the four known voyages of the Age of Exploration's least-known adventurer to Norway and the frozen ice barrier of the North Pole, his exploration of the Hudson River and his final trip into northern Canada where he was set adrift by his crew to die.

“Henry Hudson: Dreams and Obsession” was published in a second edition for the Amazon Kindle in 2014.

“Watching Baseball”, written with former Boston Red Sox star and current broadcaster Jerry Remy became a runaway bestseller in 2004, the year the Red Sox finally broke the Curse of the Bambino and won the World Series.

He has also written books for consumers about computers and tablets, and owned and authored a travel guidebook series.

For the past decade, he has traveled the world as a speaker aboard cruise ships, giving talks about history, music, art, culture, and travel. He has lectured in the Baltic, Mediterranean, Aegean, North Africa, far northern Norway and the Arctic, Central and South America, the Caribbean, the North Atlantic, and the Canadian Maritimes.

A dedicated world traveler, Sandler has an eye for unusual connections between people, places, and events. An accomplished photographer, he illustrates his lectures with pictures taken in some of the most famous and most obscure places on earth.
