Better To Know Where

ByTom Marlow

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Better To Know Where (BTKW) is an entertaining look at a sailing voyage in San Francisco Bay. The author brings you aboard his small yacht on an insightful three day voyage through space, time and philosophy. Rooted in aesthetics and the waterfront history of the San Francisco Bay, the novel starts with the basic premise embedded in the title and never looks back. Learn why the sailors wind is so consistent on San Francisco Bay. Learn how wine became one of California's biggest exports before collapsing, only to be revived again. Get the insider skinny on hypothermia, venturi effects and Clipper Cove. Learn why a sail boat is like the stock market and why the Polly Klaas coincidences don't add up to a conspiracy. Agonize with the skipper as he nearly loses his young son to death by drowning. It's all there and more... Before your finished, you'll have repeated to yourself "I didn't know that" more times than you care to remember.
