The Boston Globe
A chatty, homey, well-illustrated biography, making pleasant and informative reading from cover to cover.
Classic Boat
Chatty and accessible, it gives a marvelous insight into the character and influences of one of the world's greatest yacht designers. Illustrated with 50 pages of photographs.
The Ensign
From the first small boats to steam launches, torpedo boats, cup defenders and great yachts of Vanderbilt, Hearst and Morgan, this is a story both surprising and complex.
After reading such a book, you realize it stands out above the rest...the pages teem with human interest, philosophy and accumulated wisdom as secrets of a great master are revealed.
