The Complete Beginner's Guide to Sailing was first published in England and came to American shores in 1971. The book covers the basic information needed to get out on the water and try sailing, which is where learning really starts. The is information on types of boats, nautical terms, gettin underway, weather, safety and sail rigging. There are over 100 diagrams and photographs, put together from a sailor's perspective. What I liked about the book was it's brevity, there is alot of relevant information packed into 200 small format pages with a readable type size. HAving sailed for 30 years, there were several excellent review points in the book. 

Get it and go try it!
