But fortunately, in my opinion, this isn't so much a book about a sailing life as it is a book about being true to yourself, following your dreams and what creates/inspires/goads you to find the courage it takes to do that. And in that regard it succeeds wonderfully.
As talented a songwriter as Chris DiCroce is, it's no surprise that his first published foray into longer form prose is so well written. He draws you into his and Melody's story by honestly sharing the hopes, dreams, fears and motivations that led him to ditch one dissatisfying life for one that may or may not turn out to be his last one, but is certainly the one he should be living now. And he sure seems to have one hell of a girlfriend.
Not everyone lives with a wanderlust pulling them to “go." If you have that pull, I guarantee you'll enjoy this. But beyond that, for everyone who's willing to truly examine their life and ask if how it is now is how you wanted it to be, this is a book you should read. It doesn't ask anything of you but it may help inspire you to answer some of those questions you're asking of yourself. Best 99 cents I've spent in a long long time. Highly recommended.
As a lifelong sailor, etc., I have an agreement with the underlying statement. You have to go. You'll never know it all though you will know enough. No amount of planning and analysis will replace simply going. The joy is in the going/doing.
When you are ready to make a change and accept the risk of change then... vacilando! A good read I will recommend to my sailing students.
Heartfelt and honest, 'You Gotta Go To Know' offers great inspiration and insight for anyone who questions whether they should follow their own dreams. If you are looking for a change, this book may just give you the push you need to 'go for it'.
If you are already living your dream and/or love sailing I also recommend that you give this a read.
I look forward to seeing additional books from Chris and Melody and more illustrations from Andrew.
