While the ending is somewhat controversial it took me completely by surprise and I loved it! If you want an intriguing story that will keep you up late into the night this is it.

Former Miss Queensland actress Queensland Logie winner and businesswoman Nancy and her 2nd husband Ted Nobbs decided to quit the corporate world and sail around the world in their own yacht. This is a warm funny story of their time at sea. Nancy talks about the characters they meet along the way the perils but also the beauty they encounter. This book is light but also has depth. Well worth reading.

This book should have the subtitle MORAL DILEMMAS. The main character is Isabel Dalhousie a mid forty self employed editor of a magazine called Review of Applied Ethics. The book is peppered with quotations from well known and lesser known philosophers. I found this tedious particularly in the first part of the book as the plot develops rather slowly. I found the topic interesting the book has well defined characters. The more I read the more I enjoyed the book.

The author is a social commentator. His outlook is optimistic in general. Only on the last pages when he ponders the future of the total world population his optimism evaporates. Time will tell ...

The author did a huge amount of research for this book. The book consists of two main sections the first and second world wars and the postwar periods. The value of the Three Brilliant Careers is the insight into the lives of three bright women during the first half of the nineteenth century.

The book describes the author's experiences in the Iraq war during 2004 and 2005. He avoids comments on politics and the validity of this war and instead describes in detail the life of a gunman in a war torn city in Iraq. I found it worthwhile to read because of the insights into the life and thoughts of a young man who was actively involved in a modern war without the glorification and heroism we see in many films.
