Selection is a bit arbitrary; the high technology side of the industry is pretty much ignored. But that's not what this book is about. It's about beauty. It's about style. It's about craftsmanship.
Those are great things, in any era, for any reason. But I do join with the previous reviewer: This is an appreciation, not a buyers' guide. By all means buy the Dashews' Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia and educate yourself technically before spending $ 500,000 plus on a boat.
Buy this book and let your imagination soar, into a world where you have the funds and the energy to maintain a sixty-five foot teak-laden palace. True beauty is yours.
