Ever since manís first ascent in a hot-air balloon in the eighteenth century, men and women have dreamt of being the first or fastest to fly around the world. There have been several who have circumnavigated the world, but only one Indian, Wing Commander Rahul Monga of the Indian Air Force.The book is fantastically readable, honest and an extremely accomplished first book by the author. He vividly recounts the thrilling voyage he undertook Ė battling time, the elements, and the limits of human endurance to circumnavigate the earth in a microlight aircraft in 2007. Interspersed with maps and photographs, the author has painstakingly recreated the entire journey, replete with descriptions not only of the adventure and the danger, red tape and bureaucracy, but also of people and places, culture and food and, most importantly, the beauty of our world.This magnificent journey would have been forgotten but for these written words. Starting from a hot and dusty day in India, the book progresses chronologically as the author flew over Southeast Asia, China, Far East Russia, North America, the Arctic, Europe and Asia. Replete with an eye for detail, emotions and humour, this is an entertaining and highly informative book that no pilot or armchair aviator will be content to read only once.Printed Pages: 226.
