TITLE: The Boy Behind the Gate
BY: Larry Jacobson
Synopsis: With his first mate and crew, amateur sailor Larry Jacobson embarked on a lifelong goal to circumnavigate the globe. The namesake boy behind the gate is a passionate romantic who, since childhood, yearned to discover what’s out there….How do some people overcome fears and insecurities to manifest their dreams? What are the characteristics that allow them to completely transform their lives from one of stability to one of uncertainty and adventure? Don’t we all entertain ideas of reinventing ourselves, of having a chance to do it differently and by our own rules? Willing to risk all, Jacobson spent six years sailing into the unknown where the unrelenting oceans served as a teacher of seamanship, personal strength, and perseverance. Embarking on December 7, 2001, Larry and Ken began an adventure filled with excitement, joy, learning, and fear--all while becoming the first openly gay couple to circumnavigate the globe. In The Boy Behind the Gate, the author reveals those crucial steps that will motivate you to make your dreams come true. We are each given one great opportunity at life. What are you going to do with yours?
Review: This inspiring memoir of the first openly gay couple to cash in on corporate life and take a six year sailing adventure around the globe is a gripping tale of dreams come true! The emails, journal entries, and especially the photos create an engayging experience for the reader that makes this book difficult to put down!
