Editorial Reviews

Review

Larry Jacobson has lived life on the edge and, as a result, made his dreams come true. In this amazing, riveting book, he shares his great adventure sailing around the world. Every page I felt his fears and the storms and was right there with him on that boat. This book is about honesty, fearlessness, and having the courage to make your dreams come true.

(David Mixner, Bestselling Author)

From the Inside Flap

With his first mate and crew, amateur sailor Larry Jacobson embarked on a lifelong goal to circumnavigate the globe. The namesake boy behind the gate is a passionate romantic who, since childhood, yearned to discover what's out there....
How do some people overcome fears and insecurities to manifest their dreams? What are the characteristics that allow them to completely transform their lives from one of stability to one of uncertainty and adventure? Don't we all entertain ideas of reinventing ourselves, of having a chance to do it differently and by our own rules?
Willing to risk all, Jacobson spent six years sailing into the unknown where the unrelenting oceans served as a teacher of seamanship, personal strength, and perseverance.
In The Boy Behind the Gate, the author reveals those crucial steps that will motivate you to make your dreams come true. We are each given one great opportunity at life. What are you going to do with yours?
