I liked the parts about the explorers and to some degree her swims, following in Amundsen's footsteps. She really needed an editor for the last part, which was rambling, and convoluted. I tried to keep an open mind, but closed the book before the last two chapters. I wanted more about the explorers and less Lynne Cox's long explanations on how many people she had to talk to to get permission to go to Antarctica.

What a disappointment! From the subtitle, I anticipated an Amundsen career biography. Instead, rhe first 83 pages are largely concerned with the author's exploits and recitation of many details about her plans to follow Amundsen's Northwest Passage voyage. Perhaps she will get around to Amundsen later. If so, I will not stay to read it.
