Fans of the Dread Pirate will be pleased to know that he is signing up crew for a second voyage aboard the Destiny’s Quest. From the bottom line advice that you just have to learn to sail your ship yourself, to the power of positive companionship, Dread is back. In this new collection of essays, IDSS II, he gives adventurer hard hitting motivational scrolls.
From the opening essays, which include a delicious call to note the small things around us, we see that the Dread Pirate is a man of discerning sensuality, which enhances his mystery and appeal. Because ultimately the scrolls are not about seafaring lore and nautical wisdom, they are about the heart of all who seek a successful life voyage. He makes this point in, “What was, what is and what will be …”
The delights of this second volume go far past the deep tone of his writing. The Captain has included beautiful photos of ships and sea, which invite the reader to linger and soak up the briny flavor of the sea-faring life. There are also tantalizing snippets of fiction that make his points from a whole new angle.
Moments of humor are sprinkled with a wry-tone throughout. Readers of this second volume will find all the vinegar that made the first volume a hit, with innovations and additions that make IDSS II a more satisfying sail through waters of motivation to reach the port you want.
