A Sea Vagabond's World: Boats and Sails, Distant Shores, Islands and Lagoons.
Moitessier's previous books were all magical, a man doing what he wanted to do for himself.
This book is different it is very much a 'How To' manual. While it is all fascinating information a great deal of it is probably only actually relevant if you sail a wooden or steel boat and do all of your own maintenance. If you sail a GRP boat, as most of us do these days and get the yard to do all the hard bits of maintenance (that you feel you do not have the skills for), then it is a much less useful read.
For the serious sailor you have to read it becuase it is Moitessier and for the section on ground tackle
