In this book the author tells us the biography of a truly remarkable boat and the story of the man who built this boat. It is much more than just a tale of technology - we would rather consider this publication a profile of imagination and hubris of a legendary enterpreneur. The man to whom this book is dedicated, has a dream and that dream was not to get very rich or acquire power. Tom Perkins was one of the creators of the world famous Silicon Valley and, obviously, already possessed all of that wealth, being a one of the most successful venture capitalists. As he hit his seventies, this man decided to build the larges, highest-tech, fastest and, by the way, riskiest sailboat ever - and called it the perfect yacht. The yacht would be as long as the soccer field, about 42 feet wide, have three masts each having a height of a twenty-storied building... The Maltese Falcon, the world's biggest privately-owned sailing ship. This book is a really exhilarating account of how this yacht was created. It is indeed revealing and very engaging. The ones who read it will for sure do that with a great deal of interest and will not get disappointed. This eminent person and his boat have been examined in this publication with precision and insight.
