I second this opinion, very good book.

I just finished a great book, don't know if its not already on this list, I did not search through all 27 pages.

"A Voyage of Mad Men", is a great read about the first solo nonstop race around the world; The Golden Globe. I found it completely fascinating. It is very well written full of history and wonderful personalities.
