    "Well done"

    Interesting book. The author did a lot of work and thinking about the subject and offers much useful cruising advice.

    "not worth the time"
    What disappointed you about Get Her on Board?

    Shallow and very condescending to "wives".Not just disappointing but unbearable. I returned it after the first few chapters.

    "Totally a guy book. Do not let your wife near it!"

    Full of sound and well reasoned advice to help guys who want to get their wives onboard with the idea of going cruising. Feminists will hate it, so if you're one save yourself some rage and stay away. Women with a sense of humour will probably love it. Guys who are looking for some practical advice on how to influence their spouse in a painless way will totally enjoy this book. Presented in a light- hearted way and excellently narrated, the book is more than a sailing book. It's closer to being a study in applied psychology which uses the narrative of cruising as a base from which to deliver a lot of good advice. I loved it.
