A breathtaking, awe-inspiring memoir of determination and courage against impossible obstacles and challenges. Couldn't put it down.

A story of incredible determination. Lynne Cox is unreal.

Lynne Cox is an inspiration. Her integrity, determination, and positive attitude is admirable.
I wondered if an entire book about swimming might be a little boring but I was riveted throughout the book. Many lessons and insights can be applied to any sport.
It's easy to read and well-written.

What do you do next when you're a long-distance swimmer who broke the record for crossing the English Channel at 15? If you're Lynne Cox, you swim the Nile (and get dysentery from the toxic conditions), the Cape of Good Hope (sharks), and Alaska's Glacier Bay. Then, you swim to the Soviet Union (this was 1987) from Alaska, and in Antarctic waters. Cox, who loves cold-water swimming, also wanted to bring people together through her achievements. Swimming to Antarctica displays both her determination and her love for the sport. Popular Culture newsletter March 2015.
