'Catamarans - The Complete Guide for Cruising Sailors' by Gregor Tarjan

I just bought this book from B&N and it seems super informative...
... any long term cat owners/operators have any comments about this book:

"Catamarans - The complete guide for Cruising Sailors" by Gregor Tarjan

ISBN 978-0-07-149885-2

I found the book super informative for junior sailor to expert captain.

It is a good cover to cover read - but if you have never sailed anything - you may want to brush up on your sailing terminology before venturing this title...

What do you think of this book?

Loved that book. Nice photos too. Some sailing/cruising/boating books are poorly written, more than I'd expect, but this one is good.
