Adrift: Seventy-six Days Lost at Sea

Adrift: Seventy-Six Days Lost at Sea - Steven Callahan was this the predecessor work for [b:Life of Pi|4214|Life of Pi|Yann Martel|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320562005s/4214.jpg|1392700]? certainly at least some people think so, as the author reveals in the foreword that people have written letters to him claiming 'spiritual guidance' in the tale. and Callahan, moreover, was a philosophy major in university, just as the esteemed Yann Martel, that fraudster. (ha)

1987 New York Times best-seller sensation, Callahan's work does characterize time and philosophy and 76 days passes by in the sweep of a full book. beats that Andean plane crash story. better than [b:Perfect Storm|108229|The Perfect Storm A True Story of Men Against the Sea|Sebastian Junger|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1171580454s/108229.jpg|1887699]? hmm it's an interesting genre, survival stories...
