Good look at the 1983 loss of the America's cup and how Dennis Conner made his come back. First part is very interesting about the '83 race and his loss, this section moves very fast. The next couple of chapters move quickly as you go with Dennis on his quest to raise money, find a yacht club and find a crew. The racing sequences are broken down so the novelist can understand it. Slows down near the end though. The explanations about the laminates are a little long and dry. The last chapters pick up speed and ends on a high note. Good morale book.
