In this book, Capt. Fatty Goodlander's collected articles from Cruising World prove that living the life of a cruising sailor can be enchanting to anyone who loves stories about boats and the sea. His writing prowess is equally matched with a salty sprinkling of how-to-advice, Zen witticisms, and tales that will leave you breathless. If you happen to be a mush like me, his enthusiasm for life and his love for his wife will fill you with tender awe. Around and around the world they sail, sharing a bliss that makes him the envy of us all. I highly recommend this book. I give it to friends. I read it again and again.
