The book is well organised into periods and families of designs with a fine discussion of the origins of the design, how Rhodes came to be involved, how successful the boats were, and lots of information about their sailing characteristics.
Interspersed is a detailed biography of the man and his career.
It is also accompanied by some of the drawings as well as specifications and lots of glorious pictures.
If you have a Rhodes yacht, or are interested in yacht design, this is a great book to own. Truly informative and fascinating, yet a great “coffee table” book as well.
