Desperate Voyage is indeed a good read, but its non-fiction rating is a bit exaggerated! I first read it years ago, and couldn't quite imagine that some of his adventures were true. Then later I read an interview with him in which he admitted that he had "embelllished" a few times at the insistance of his editor who thought that the story needed a bit more pizazz! Kinda like Tristan Jones... both great story tellers.
Cheers and good reading to all,
