By "perfect," do you actually mean good?

In this case, "perfect" means the unusual confluence of circumstances that make the Atlantic storm of October 1991 the worst possible storm. Junger writes in turn about the crew of the Andrea Gail, the rare and horrific storm, and the life of fishermen and women in general. This pulsating true story reads like a novel, as the suspense rises after the crew kisses wives, girlfriends and moms goodbye for what should be a huge paycheck. It turns into something much more diabolical.
