Product Description

Review

'Sympathetic, entertaining and insightful, this is the long-deserved biography of a man who has dominated the nautical humour scene for well over seven decades.'<BR> --Yachting Life (December 2009)<br /><br />'This gem of a book is a hugely entertaining and revealing portrait of a man whose gentle, good humour shines through the pages.'<BR> --Yachting Monthly (January 2010)<br /><br />'Great read.'<BR> --Classic Boat & The Boatman (Feburary 2010)<br /><br />'Mike Peyton's cartoons have enriched PBO for over 30 years, and this book tells the story of the maverick behind the drawings.'<BR> --Practical Boat Owner (March 2010)<br /><br />'When we laugh at Mike Peyton's cartoons we laugh with empathy because we are laughing at ourselves.'<BR> --Yachting World (March 2010)<br /><br />'For those of us who grew up with magazines like Yachting Monthly and Motorboat & Yachting before the arrival of canal magazines, this book is a must!'<BR> --Canals & Rivers (March 2010)<br /><br />'An extremely good book, accompanied by many photographs. The author has done Mike proud, and this is a great biography. A very interesting book and recommended.'<BR> --Nautical Magazine (March 2010)<br /><br /> 'Peyton is a thoroughly enjoyable read, describing the life of an extraordinary man, rightly described as the world's greatest yachting cartoonist.' --Lifeboat Magazine (March 2010)

About the Author

Dick Durham is a lifelong friend and admirer of Mike Peyton. He began his writing career on Fleet Street and for the last ten years has been Yachting Monthly's Features Editor. He sails with Mike at every opportunity he gets, and is never surprised to find an anecdote he has shared with Mike subsequently crop up in one of Mike's cartoons.
