Sebastian Junger is a remarkable journalist as can you clearly see in the depth of his research and the precision of his prose. He's also a very gifted storyteller, and he has chosen a particularly compelling subject. This is a book about the "perfect storm", an unprecedented collision of meteorological conditions that created a cataclysmic storm in the north Atlantic in October of 1991. The book actually consists of several different incidents that took place during the storm. The most compelling is the story of the Andrea Gail, a commercial fishing boat that disappeared in the storm. The exact details of the vessel's end can't be known with certainty, but Junger does a remarkable job of weaving together the most likely scenario from his research about the crew, the history of the vessel and the experience of other ships in the region. He has even researched death by drowning, and he portrays a moving picture of the crew's probable last moments. The other parts of the book are equally remarkable. You will be particularly impressed with the bravery and heroism of the Air National Guard.

The books is great and actually should not be placed in the "hard" category, but the abundance of some technical marine jargon and else. The most amazing part is that it is a true story and you live through it.

This edition contains historical pictures of main characters, settings, and events. It is really impressive to see the streets of Gloucester, MA.
