This book is a sequel to the first Addicted to Adventure. The adventures here are more varied, in time as well as place and content. There are many diverse adventures involving sailing and climbing in different places around the world.

It shows there has been life after, and also before the first Addicted. There are tales of derring-do, there are tales of delivering boats to outlandish places in the world, tales even of sailing the shores of Britain, and of bouncing around in Norway.

The stories are adventures in their own right, each with their own challenges. They stretch from the Arctic to the Antarctic with plenty in between and are illustrated with graphic pictures and maps. Some people have already said they think it is better than the first Addicted!

Forewords by Jimmy Cornell and Lin Pardey set the scene, whilst Ellen Massey Leonard provides a thought-provoking 'Afterword' to sum things up. You will be amused, you may be impressed, occasionally you may even be frightened. But, above all you will enjoy an exciting read. And who knows, you may become a little less risk-averse yourself after reading this book.

"This is another inspiring book by the indefatigable Bob Shepton, a worthy sequel to his Addicted to Adventure... Bob, please don't stop." Jimmy Cornell, Circumnavigator, Author of World Cruising Routes

"There are so many lessons to be learnt by reading Bob Shepton's voyaging and adventuring stories... And you will definitely need a sense of humour". Lin Pardey, Author of Storm Tactics and Self-Sufficient Sailor.

The book is available on Amazon worldwide.
RRP £15.00
