About this deal

It’s intended to be for people who just like a good story, a bit of an adventure and be whipped off to a few different places around the world.” Toby in South East Iceland in the first summer of his adventure Armchair travel at its best. And I say armchair because I was very happy to just read this one, with all its thrills and spills, without feeling the need to go and do it myself. At times, I could practically feel the ocean churning beneath me, and my queasy stomach doing somersaults. A unique and heart-warming adventure, and beautifully written too. Bravo. - Simon Parker, journalist and author of Riding Out It was quite hard listening to his voice, and also the notebooks smelt of his house and stuff, so some of it, emotionally, was really hard, especially in the beginning. “Tobywas a fun-lovingadventurer really, but also a very normal bloke”.

Moderate, Becoming Good Later for Katie Carr completes book Moderate, Becoming Good Later for

Written by Toby's sister Katie from his extensive notes and recordings after his untimely death, Moderate Becoming Good Later is both an epic adventure - sometimes choppy, constantly moving - and a personal voyage of discovery that includes old friends and new, plenty of wildlife, and the ever-present sea.

The person disappears or fades away and it’s not very nice when they were such a strong personality. Heartbreaking, and utterly wonderful. A journey that had to be made, and a story that had to be told. - Alex Bescoby, adventurer and author After many years travelling the world in business storytelling roles, Katie had always expected to write a book, just not this one. She can currently be found at home in Barcelona, wrangling two young boys or learning to kayak to finish Toby's adventure. An incredible read of adventure and life that will draw you in and inspire you to pursue your own journeys. Katie has truly honoured her brother with this gripping recount. - Jenny Tough, adventurer and author of Tough Women Adventure Stories and Solo

It also followed the loss of his brother Marcus to cancer in 2017, aged 38, which acted as an alarm call for his own life.It's rare to read a book that links place and motivation so clearly. Toby's story of seizing life's opportunities despite obstacles should inspire all of us to not let life pass us by. And the love of his sister Katie in finishing this story for Toby is profoundly moving. * Ash Bhardwaj, travel journalist and broadcaster * Sadly, Toby died on the 10th of January 2022; his last time in a sea kayak had been less than two weeks earlier, in Flushing, the village which had become home. By this time, he had become a regular fixture with the Jersey Canoe Club, I stayed out of the conversation, but the other group members had no hesitation in offering him a place. He was welcomed with open arms. He joined us in Jersey for a couple of training weekends before the day arrived, and we met in Terminal 5 at Heathrow for our flight to Copenhagen.
