New book for boat owners and cursers

I am hardly recommending on a new book; “Age of sail” written by Christopher Slaney, how share his experience together with wide prospective of taking decisions, such as details of your require a boat, how to name her, co-owners, whether systems and life on board. I just ordered the book on Amazon.

Yep, "hardly recommending" is not a ringing endorsement either

The following questions are asked in a friendly tone of voice, with the intent to help.

I am curious.
You are recommending a book.
But you also say you just ordered the book.
So, did you read the book before?
Have you read the book at all, before recommending it?

Tell us something about Christopher Slaney.

Re: New book for boat owners and cursers

From Amazon:
About the Author
Christopher Slaney was born and raised in the English Midlands. He attended University College London, where he attained a degree in Geography, before going on to study Marine Surveying. He is married, has three adult children and has lived most of the last 40 years in Israel. Much of Christopher’s working life was spent in the media, working as a news cameraman before taking on roles in TV production and journalism, where he spent time covering conflicts and momentous events around the world. In his work, he has watched Nelson Mandela walk out of prison as a free man, witnessed armed conflict in a dozen countries and reported from the Vatican. Apart from his wife, sailing has been Christopher’s great love and as soon as their children were living independently, they spent more and more time on the sea, relishing its vast open spaces and freedom and sailing across the Atlantic three times. Now he is using his experiences, turning his attention to writing and has just completed his first book, Age of Sail. In his free time, apart from setting sail as often as he can, Christopher loves running, being outdoors, art and music. He is also dedicated to environmental issues and is involved with an international foundation which promotes environmental studies in schools. His wish for the future is that his grandchildren will enjoy a safer, greener and sustainable future. You can follow Christopher Slaney or contact him at: Facebook – Age Of Sail Website – www.myageofsail.com

Re: New book for boat owners and cursers

I have not read the book (yet) but can wholeheartedly state that Chris and his wife Nirit are of the better part of humanity��
This is based on personal knowledge...

Re: New book for boat owners and cursers

11 reviews on Amazon, all of them wax lyrical with 5 stars - okay, I'm intrigued, will try the kindle edition at around $3-4.

I suspect a member from another country and English as a second language. I have been known to do some serious butchering of Spanish myself.

“Whether systems and life onboard”, sounds ominous
