I bought this book the other day from the LAA online shop.
It had arrived when I got home at 7pm.
I casually started reading it...
...and finished it at 2am.
I think it's the first book I've ever read in one sitting.
What an adventure - flying around the world solo in a homebuilt aircraft. Manuel is one of only 6 people on the planet to have done so.
He is probably the least qualified and experienced person to do so too. A relatively low hours PPL.
He obviously writes well but it is his ability to put you in the moment of what is happening that stands out. Plus he has a neat way of talking about big issues without sounding overtly offensive when he puts across his point of view.
I can't recommend it highly enough. Buy it, read it.
