Publisher's Summary

First You Have to Row a Little Boat first hit shelves in the mid 1990s and has been inspiring readers ever since. Written by a grown man looking back on his childhood, it reflects on what learning to sail taught him about life: making choices, adapting to change, and becoming his own person. Available for the first time as an audiobook, it is filled with the spiritual wisdom and thought-provoking discoveries that marked such books as Walden, The Prophet, and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. Includes a foreword from New York Times bestselling author Jeffrey Zaslow.

What the Critics Say

"What a wonderful book it is! Pure Joy." (Walter Cronkite)

"Such an imaginative way to compare our sport of sailing to life. I really enjoyed how Richard shares his experience of sailing and how subconsciously it was preparing him for growth. Keeping life simple and appreciating the little things rather than getting caught up in the race or the idea of the adventure is an aspect of life that is easily forgotten these days." (Anna Tunnicliffe, 2008 Olympic Gold Medalist in Sailing)

"Bode uses his great love of sailing as a metaphor for the tides of life.... Determinedly inspirational, this book will appeal to admirers of Robert Fulghum." (Publisher's Weekly)
