Long Way Down by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman
This is an account of the authors' second massive motorcycle journey, travelling from John O'Groats at the northern tip of Scotland, through Europe and then thousands of kilometres through Africa down to Cape Town. (The first series "Long Way Round" takes the authors from London to New York via Siberia and points in between.) Although I've watched the television series that this was based on, I enjoyed getting a more personal story of how both men experienced the trip. There's only so much footage you can show in a TV documentary, after all.
