This is the most exciting book for boaters published this year! I've just finished reading Treacherous Waters and I feel that the selection of material is tremendous. I am honored to be among the sailors whose adventures were selected (Wake of the Green Storm). I'm personally enthused about this book (and glad to have made it back to dry land). For non-boaters, Treacherous Waters will be a great beach read.
