Which, in the opinion of folks who might have a clue, is the best ... or the least worse?
Results go on my list to Santa.

It's not the Godforsaken Sea or "The Race"; it's not supposed to be. It's a personal narrative by one sailor who really did come against long odds to finish, and get a very respectable 9th at that. Budget campaign, American sailing hero, underdog story, Vendee finisher, well written book... 'nuff said.
"Race France to France, leave Antarctica to Starboard" by Rich Wilson.
If you already follow the Vendee, or just like adventure sailing books, i'd recommend to give it a read. Good book and Wilson becomes more endearing throughout. Full review will be on front page... at some point.

(I take my copy everywhere I go for a longer time, it's the most worn book I own, and it's autographed... If I dig deep I'd even find the photo of having it signed in one of the threads here.)
