This is just a good book. I would recommend this book to anyone who is in love with the water. First you have to Row a Little Boat by Richard Bode is a wonderful book about reflection on life and living. I can truthfully say that this book is the best book I have ever read. R. Bode uses his young life as a sailor to show philosophical views on life, and what views they are! I feel a connection to Mr. Bode's childhood. I too have a little blue boat that I love so much and sail during the summer. In this book I have learned that the fastest way to a certain spot is not a strait line, but a zig zagging one. Just simple sailing lessons like this one can relate to everyday life and help a person through it. If you are a sailor too you will easily relate to this book in that same way as I have. The wonderful way that Richard Bode writes this book is that everyone, who is a sailor, can relate, but in his/her own ways. Everyone draws from his/her own experiences but gets the same result, understanding life. I really enjoyed reading this book. It brought up ideas in my mind that I would have never though of otherwise. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes sailing.

Richard Bode has given us a beautiful book to savor and ponder. I read this straight through in one day-a rare event for me, since I always read several very different books at a time. FIRST YOU HAVE TO ROW A LITTLE BOAT had me totally engaged and I kept marking paragraphs and writing WOW in the margins. On page 145 he says, "If every man and woman were to take the meaning of their life and pursue it passionately, they would alter the social landscape overnight. In fact, that's how lasting revolutions are made-not by the raised arm of the masses, not by the military seizure of power, not by the political coup d'état, but by individuals asserting who they are one at a time." WOW.
His use of sailing as metaphor worked beautifully for me, even though I don't sail. His comments (page 32) about listening to the wind instead of holding tightly to dogma and rigidity were eloquent bordering on poetry. Very inspiring.

Richard Bode schafft, was nur wenige Autoren schaffen: er regt zum Reflektieren über das eigene Leben an, ohne den moralischen Zeigefinger zu erheben. Er macht die komplexen und schwer greifbaren "Wichtigkeiten des Lebens" mit Bildern deutlich, ohne ständig die metaphorische Umwelt zu wechseln. Er behält das Bild des Segelns vom ersten bis zum letzten Satz bei, ohne für Landratten uninteressant zu werden. Er vermittelt viel Inhalt und Anstöße zum Nachdenken, ohne den Lesespaß zu verderben.
Fazit: unbedingt lesenswert! Und aus o.g. Gründen und nicht zuletzt, weil die deutsche Übersetzung gut gelungen ist, ein schönes und persönliches Geschenk.

Bode uses his obvious love for sailing as the basis for lifes' learning experiences, and it works to the point that everyone should be given a boat at birth! If only we could all have lived in his childhood to share those 'building blocks of life' in the first person, but this book is the next best thing. Sailors like myself gain even more from his experiences, because although we might have been there, Bodes grabs us back to that joy and disappointment, the thrill and inspiration that sailing has given us. If you haven't got the idea that I heartily recommend this book, perhaps my writing isn't as elequent as Bodes... buy this book!!

It's always nice to find an undisturbed beach that you have to yourself. Judging by the lack of reveiws on this book, that's what this is - a beautiful piece of work that few know about. Suffice it to say that Ricard Bode has a talent for sharing inspiration through metaphors. He's damn fine writer as well. I will keep this book close to me the rest of my life. Thanks Richard....keep them coming please.

es ist eines meiner lieblingsbücher. es geht um die metapher segeln auf dem weiten meer und verhalten und entscheiden im leben. meist ist, wie im alltag auch, eine kleine kursänderung von grosser wirkung. kentern und wieder neu kurs aufnehmen ... wie im leben sonst auch ein kleines boot ist am anfang leichter, als ein zu grosses. was "zu gross" ist, muss der held selbst herausfinden..

The finest quote in the book says it all really... "For the truth is that I already know as much about my fate as I need to know. The day will come when I will die. So the only matter of consequence before me is what I will do with my allotted time. I can remain on shore, paralyzed with fear, or I can raise my sails and dip and soar in the breeze." Amen.

Richard Bode is one of the main sailing authors I know. Far from being the adventurous sailor on ocean regattas Bode is one of the few authors I would always carry with me as a sailor. And as a spiritual leader guiding people to the essence of themselves. A wonderful book that will always have a place on my bookshelf.

This is one of those little books that you want everyone to read; so why not put it in your shopping cart and give it as gifts. My husband and I both read it, passed it on to our 20 year old daughter and many of our clients. Everyone loves the inspiration it brings to your heart!

I thought that the book was a nice little analogy comparing the lesons of sailing with life. Although not a sailor, I found the author's experiences with sailing similar to my own from running.
