There is nothing imaginary about Junger's book; it is all terrifyingly, awesomely real.--Los Angeles Times
It was the storm of the century, boasting waves over one hundred feet high—a tempest created by so rare a combination of factors that meteorologists deemed it "the perfect storm." In a book that has become a classic, Sebastian Junger explores the history of the fishing industry, the science of storms, and the candid accounts of the people whose lives the storm touched. ?The Perfect Storm? is a real-life thriller that makes us feel like we've been caught, helpless, in the grip of a force of nature beyond our understanding or control.

The Perfect Documentary
My father loaned me his copy of this book a number of years ago and, although I always wanted to have a copy of my own, I never got around to getting it. That is, until it got released on the iBooks store. The book still reads like it did for me the first time. Very well researched, both exciting and terrifying, an honor to the living and very respectful of the dead. I never saw the movie, but it's been my experience that movies can never do justice to books like this. Read the book!
Perfect book for a perfect storm
This book is amazing
Now this book is a very good book. Saying that, the book was just boring to me. I felt most of it were facts, and it was boring. (Especially in the beginning) BUT it gets more and more interesting as you go.
