Book Review of Kings of the Sea
Sunday, September 05, 2004  4:54:00 PM

by Judine B Slaughter

In the book "Kings of the Sea," Brian David Williams uses the pen as his fishing rod to reel in a compelling story. His personal history interwines with Paul''s many stories. The main goal lies in what it takes to become successful, not only as a fisherman, but any career. Read "The Kings of the Sea" and takes Paul''s advice, "Be the best at what you decide to be. Don''t ever lose sight of what you believe in." (pg 119)

The Kings of the Sea By: Brian David Williams Description: A pen instead of a fishing rod How do you measure greatness? Some consider financial security, good health or simply a job well done as an indicator of success. And the career that brings you to this plateau, might take time away from your family, or cause physical an emotional stress. But when the day is done, if you are satisfied and you feel as if you are fulfilling your passion, then any trials which float down your stream are well worth it.

The Kings of the Sea is a testimony of a man and a boy who fulfilled their passion as fisherman. Chelsea Oxford always wanted to become a fisherman, even as a very young child. When he turned thirteen, he skips school and goes down to the river to learn from the best fisherman in the Bahamas, Paul Ronney. Paul tries to discourage Chelsea with his stories of being on the sea for months away from his family, and losing the affection of his children. But Chelsea could only hear the strength of Paul's life lessons while pursing his passion.

"Train yourself to be an early bird; early birds catch the most fish." (pg 24) "Just because your father wasn't there of you doesn't mean you have to do the same." (pg 54) "You don't hate people because they make mistakes." (pg 68) These antedotes and many more dangled as bait for Chelsea. He continued to visit with Paul at the river, until he is old enough to set sail alone. He suffered many trials to become the greatest fisherman, even amputating one of his legs to catch a great white shark.
