I found this impossible to get into:
(a) it reads far too much like a motivational seminar...
(b) although supposedly a story about someone struggling to follow his dream the plot really seems to be guy makes a fortune in business; goes sailing
(b) too in-your-face with unnecessary detail about the author's gay relationships; were he straight I still wouldn't want to know how long his lover made him wait before sleeping with him, etc.
"Inspirational - loved it"
So good, I had to listen to it twice. An amazing account of Larry's round the world journey from the highs and low of circumnavigation. Great insight into places to visit whilst cruising along with much to learn about boat handling. The story has also been very well written to convey the emotions felt along the way.
