Description : “The best survival book in a decade” (Outside magazine), 438 Days is the true story of the fisherman who survived fourteen months in a small boat drifting seven thousand miles across the Pacific Ocean. On November 17, 2012, a pair of fishermen left the coast of Mexico for a weekend fishing trip in the open Pacific. That night, a violent storm ambushed them as they were fishing eighty miles offshore. As gale force winds and ten-foot waves pummeled their small, open boat from all sides and nearly capsized them, captain Salvador Alvarenga and his crewmate cut away a two-mile-long fishing line and began a desperate dash through crashing waves as they sought the safety of port. Fourteen months later, on January 30, 2014, Alvarenga, now a hairy, wild-bearded and half-mad castaway, washed ashore on a nearly deserted island on the far side of the Pacific. He could barely speak and was unable to walk. He claimed to have drifted from Mexico, a journey of some seven thousand miles. 438 Days is the first-ever account of one of the most amazing survival stories in modern times. Based on dozens of hours of exclusive interviews with Alvarenga, his colleagues, search-and-rescue officials, the remote islanders who found him, and the medical team that saved his life, 438 Days is an unforgettable study of the resilience, will, ingenuity and determination required for one man to survive more than a year lost and adrift at sea.

Description : This book is about choices, focus, survival and how our American based cultural belief systems sometimes “shortcut” our decision making processes. We all have belief systems. They are neither good nor bad. It is the additional information we choose to either include or not include in our decisions that determine the outcome. Our belief system is not limited to religious or spiritual aspects, but include every decision we make about every task we do on a daily basis. What foods we eat, what we watch, read, listen, our friends, our employers; it is an endless list. Without additional information, everything we believe in will produce an expected, less desirable outcome. With additional information, we will make better decisions with a more predictable, desirable outcome. In this book I share some of my experiences and how I struggled to understand the importance of how to effectively use information. For me, it is the person Jack Mulder that goes overboard at night in the Pacific Ocean and transforms into the person, “Captain Jack”. Just a “moment” passes from the time I leave the sailboat until I hit the water. It was that “moment” of understanding along with my beliefs that would determine the outcome.
