I expected this autobiography to be fascinating ; I didn't expect it to be beautifully written as well. Trubridge's achievements are sensational but in the book we get to know a thoughtful young man who has faced as many setbacks as he has wins in his drive to achieve his dream.

I, personally bought this book without any recommendations, or, gifting from any book companies. I bought this book online from Paperplus.co.nz. and as a personal choice....................... After viewing a television broadcast of our very own NZ freediver, William Trubridge on a couple of occasions, I had to buy this book........................ "I had promised New Zealand that I would be back to try for the record again and that when I finally reached the mark it would be dedicated to everyone who had supported me in the process.".......................I remember the failed attempt and I remember those words William spoke..........................."This time, there were no hiccups and after being under water for 4 minutes, 30 seconds, I surfaced and claimed my seventeenth world record.".............................. I remember the triumph, the happiness and elation. However, it wasn't until I read Williams memoir, that I found out how hard this had been in the first place................................This memoir has stages that seperate readers can identify. Life as a child growing up on a boat, free diving as a sport, ethnic and techniques used in his training and Williams affinity with the sea, dolphins in particular and other sea creatures.............................I sincerely thank William Trubridge for opening up part of his life and letting us see how his life is.
