What began as a relaxing fishing party became a harrowing tale of death and survival against unfathomable odds. On Saturday, February 28, 2009, 24-year-old personal trainer Nick Schuyler and three football friends--Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, 26, Lions defensive end Corey Smith, 29, and Will Bleakley, 25, a teammate from the University of South Florida--sailed away from Tampa Bay for a day in the Gulf of Mexico. But 35 miles off the Florida coast, their 21-foot boat flipped, hurling the four athletes into the rough water. For more than 12 hours, they gripped the boat as the temperature dropped and the waves climbed. Then, to Schuyler's horror, one by one, his friends succumbed to hypothermia. Found 45 hours later, Schuyler too suffered severe hypothermia, injuries, and the guilt of being the only man to survive.--From publisher description.… (mere)

Glad I read it. These young men were lost at sea the weekend of March 1, 2009. I was running my first 26.2 that day, tired and discouraged and struggling in a storm that came across that day. When I heard about these men I remembered that running is just running--I was struggling for a 4:30 finish that day, but these guys were fighting for their lives. The story has kept running in perspective for me ever since. The story isn't superbly well-written here, but I think it's honest, and it does a good job honoring the three who were lost. ( )

A tragic and haunting story that will leave you to draw your own conclusion because there's only 1 man who knows what really happened, and this is his story. A worst nightmare scenario. I personally loved the book and read it after watching him appear on NBC. Would recommend to anyone... ( )

A riveting story, told quite poorly. Basic gist: a bunch of happenin' brewski-buddy "bros" go fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, capsize the boat, and one survives. It's a story of one bad and/or stupid choice after another - would have been great slapstick if it weren't so pathetically sad. How so much stupidity can be displayed in such a short time is mind-boggling.
I couldn't help but compare this story to something like "Alive" or Shackleton, where, in similar scarey situations, the men (boys, in the case of "Alive") all work together and face adversity as a unit. In great contrast, here are 4 egotistical "stud"s who all fight for "number 1" instead of working together and, as a result, only the most self-centered guy survives, allowing the others to work for his benefit. It was like a "Survivor" episode. And how shallow can these guys get?!! : the only survivor is in the hospital and bemoans the fact that all his 6-pack abs body building workouts have gone to waste - oh my! so sad! - it's gonna take him weeks, months! I tell you, to get back that physique... facepalm. ( )

A well-written memoir about a horrifying and tragic trip. Mr. Schuyler recounts the circumstances that led to the deaths of three of his friends. What separates this book from other survivor stories is that Mr. Schuyler comes across as himself. He does not try to hide his arrogance or his confusion as to why he was the only one who survived. Whether this was on purpose or just how the book fell, I don't know but the ultimate outcome was that the book felt real. ( )

Incredible story that is poorly written. ( )

One year ago, athletic trainer Nick Schuyler survived for 43 hours clinging to an overturned boat in the Gulf of Mexico, in an accident that took the lives of two National Football League players and another friend. “Not Without Hope,” Schuyler’s memoir, recalls their profoundly sad struggle for life.
