Good overview of fundamentals

Covers all of the bases, although it is a bit cursory on some points. I'll be looking for some more advanced books that go into more detail.

Straight forward, basic help

This book is our favorite on the subject. Both my son & I often spend hours with it, going over the fundamentals. I bought a copy for my bro-in-law who is new to sailing. The book is so good that I always recommend it to anyone with an interest in sailing.
