Book Rec: "The Perfect Storm: A True Story of Men Against the Sea" by Sebastian Junger

I know I'm a little late to the dance on this one, but this book is really, really good. I find myself thinking about the story long after I put it down for the night. Junger not only does his best to chronicle the final, fateful voyage of the Andrea Gail, but he fills his book with intriguing historical points about Gloucester, Mass., the swordfishing industry, and the North Atlantic in general. He also goes in depth on boat construction and performance in heavy seas. Even if you've seen the movie, you need to give this book a peek, you won't be disappointed.
