    Should be required reading by all. First as a young adult or adolescent, and then again as one ages into his/her 'senior years'.

    As a former sailboat owner, I particularly enjoyed this little gem, but experienced sailor or not, it's a wonderful book and chock full of living.

    Everything I Need to Know I Learned from Sailing

    Life lessons through the eyes of a young sailor which will hit home with young and old alike. I've given many copies of this book to friends over the years and all have loved it. You don't need to be a sailor to enjoy, but sailors will definitely identify with the lessons in patience and not always getting to your goal in a straight line.

    Not just for sailors

    I have read and re-read this little book. I have also given it on many occasions. It is simply beautiful.

    Great book

    Richard Bode has shaped the way I think of the world and of sailing. I consider myself somewhat well rounded, and this book has expressed the truths I've known in an eloquent and entertaining manner. I also sense a bit of sadness near the end. Richard, if you ever need to go sailing, I'd be honored to take you. I understand his love for the little blue sloop. Any young person who has owned a classic boat will. A must read for any sailor.
