Raise The Sails is about sailing much in the manner that Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance is about biking. Sid tells the story of surviving his "mid-life crisis" with compassion, humor, and an ability to laugh at himself. He recounts his struggle to save himself from ruination through an obsession with his sailboat. As we follow him across the country and the seas, we learn about his personal, professional, and mental life. Laugh at the antics of Sid's brother Doug and find lessons worth learning imbedded in this engaging combination of anecdote, autobiography, and self-actualization. The book combines humor, sailing, and the difficult legacy of suicide to produce a story of life-changing, spiritual redemption.

Review:

"At one level, Raise the Sails is a travelogue of sailing and adventure, full of the challenges and triumphs of pitting oneself against the sea in a forty-footer, but at another it is a deeply personal journey of self-discovery: coming to terms with middle age, learning to cherish one's marriage, and even, perhaps, finding Grace." --Man Martin, author of Days of the Endless Corvette
