I burst out crying multiple times throughout this book Very descriptive and emotionally charged. In general, I don t really follow the news It can make me sad and despairing and angry, so I m generally happy to live in a little bubble of ignorance But, I followed this story a little when it broke last year and really, how could I not It was one of the biggest stories of the year So it s no real surprise that there s now a couple of books on the market capitalising on this.But wow Wow Wow Wow If you want a book to make you not sad and not despairing and not angry, then this is it This is the antidote to the bleak news and yes, I get that that s why it was such a massive news story I feel like this story could be the poster child for globalisation The combined effort of thousands of people to get the team out of the cave was just phenomenal The sheer technical expertise and precision required was unbelievable and everyone was just so damn thorough in their preparation and in their contingency planning There s a piece of advice that floats around in times of crisis and it s look for the helpers Read this book the helpers are everywhere and it makes me happy to be alive. Incredible A well researched book of the amazing rescue mission that grabbed the attention of all the world This book recognises all the players involved in the mission and tells the story in chronological order An unbelievable story amazing than fiction. Excellent read I don t read a lot of non fiction but I read this in one day Well researched and compelling. Heartwarming book..Shows that cultures and Nations can come together for a common goal. I just love this story and always teary when all 12 Wild Boars and the Coach get out of the cave, hooyah. Well written back story if the Thai cave rescue.
