So Far, So Good recounts the story of an ordinary man who has enjoyed extraordinary adventures throughout his life. Trained as a civil engineer, Paddy Barry managed to combine raising a family with exploring remote parts of the world, often on his Galway Hooker sailing boat. From Siberia to Tierra del Fuego, Connemara to Malawi, Greenland to Ethiopia, on mountains and on sea, Paddy has endured hardships and visited places very few could match.In this revised and updated memoir, Paddy describes sailing his leaking Galway Hooker across the Atlantic Ocean to a triumphant arrival in Boston Harbour; a near 'wipe out' while successfully recreating Ernest Shackleton's exploits in Antarctica; capsizing near Mount Brandon on the night of the Fastnet Race disaster; accomplishing the first westward circumnavigation of the North Pole in a small boat, winning the Blue Water Medal; completing the hazardous journey through the Northwest Passage, one of only a handful of boats to do so; his recent remarkable journey to Greenland on an old Irish ketch; and a few less perilous journeys such as sailing across the Bay of Biscay to trade Irish woollens and whiskey for Spanish wine and cheeses - though even then they nearly collided with a tugboat and its tow - and retracing the remarkable journeys of Irish monks in Iceland.On land Paddy had further adventures building bridges in the fierce heat in Malawi, and later in life worked for the Rapid Response Team for the United Nations World Food Programme in Ethiopia. And in Ireland he worked on the construction of the iconic Poolbeg Stacks which still dominate the Dublin skyline, and which his children always referred to as 'Daddy's Chimneys'. But he was always drawn back to the sea.So Far, So Good is a rollicking, delightful account of a life truly well lived, and a striking example of a work/life balance that is much to be envied.

Legendary author Ursula K. Le Guin was lauded by millions for her ground- breaking science fiction novels, but she began as a poet. Le Guin wrote across genres for her entire career, and poetry was a cardinal mode of expression―offering a path that led readers to discover her voice at close, intimate range. In this clarifying and sublime collection―completed shortly before her death in 2018―Le Guin is unflinching in the face of mortality, and full of wonder for the mysteries beyond. Redolent of the lush natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest, with rich sounds playfully echoing myth and nursery rhyme, So Far So Good lovingly plays tribute to the memories, friendships, and timeless questions that comprised a spectacular and generous life. With profound wisdom and tenacious levity, a true literary hero bookends a long, daring, and prolific career. As Publishers Weekly hailed in a starred review of So Far So Good, "[Le Guin's] writings and convictions were driven by a big heart--the heart of a poet who knew all too well the difference between miracle and eureka, revelation and revolution."

After graduating from Harvard Business School, James L. Ferguson worked at Procter & Gamble for a decade. Both tenures served to prepare him for success at General Foods Corporation in White Plains, New York. Looking back to his childhood in Evanston, Ilinois, Ferguson sees the influence of his parents and grandparents. Although his father was a very successful advertising executive in New York, it is Ferguson's mother, the former Justine Dickson, who was his model for business success. This memoir is filled with fascinating tales of Depression-era Chicago, the parallel challenges of the personal life, and a motivating message for readers who want to know they really can work their way to the top.
