Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

is the book Dennis Conner still refers to as "the bible," He says ( magazine, 9 February 1987), "I like to compete. I guess I don't dislike it, but my sailing is just bottom line, like adding up the score in bridge. My real interest is in the tremendous game of life."

Synopsis:

"You are likely to learn more about winning yacht races by reading this book than from anything you've read in quite a while. . . . [It] gives us a close look at Conner--surely the most successful sailboat skipper in the United States today . . ." --Bruce Kirby
