A great book for beginners

I am reading the Pardey’s book, Capable Cruiser, and just finished Self-Sufficient Sailor. And let me say that these are especially great books if you are a BCC fan or owner, because the material closely parallels many of the design features of the BCC, and it is like a BCC operations primer. Very fun. I’ll have to get that book laminated, so I can hold it in one hand and the tiller in the other.
