Cheryl Strayed says

As generous as it is smart, as intimate as it is grand, as illuminating as it is dark. With grace and guts, Justin Hocking dares to go where few men have gone before: not only out to sea, but also into the depths of the human heart.

And Junot Díaz says

This beautiful memoir is beyond cool. A voyage both erudite and affecting.
