    Where does The Boy Behind the Gate: How His Dream of Sailing Around the World Became a Six-Year Odyssey of Adventure, Fear, Discovery and Love rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is by far one of my favorite audio books as well as one of my favorite sailing books. The author does an amazing job of inspiring all of us to stop dreaming and start living.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Boy Behind the Gate: How His Dream of Sailing Around the World Became a Six-Year Odyssey of Adventure, Fear, Discovery and Love?

    I had to laugh at the maintenance stories... cruising really is working on your boat in new and exotic places.

    The transit of the Persian Gulf was pretty amazing... I found myself feeling growing anxiety along with Captain and crew as they prepared for their departure.


    What about Larry Jacobson’s performance did you like?

    It's clear that the author is a sailor's sailor... well prepared and confident. That comes through in this performance. I'm looking forward to his next book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The entire book was a kick in the pants - get up and get moving. The time is short.
