Reviews

"A masterpiece."--The New Yorker
"A meticulous investigation into the seeds of disaster . . . Fascinating, uncomfortable reading."--Sunday Times
"The extraordinary story . . . for me goes with the essential documents of our time."--The Observer
"Inside Crowhurst's head is precisely where the real drama was always taking place, and the only way we can really get there is by reading his own unvarnished thoughts, as transcribed by Hall and Tomalin. As so often, the old saying holds true: if in doubt, buy the book."
--Jonathan Coe, The New Statesman
