Recensioner i media

From "Sailing Today" (UK):

"But this book is different. It's stuffed with over 150 clear colour illustrations, and informative captions and explanations. Genoa trim and mainsail trim, trimming spinnakers and rig tuning are covered in in three separate sections. I recommend this little book to everyone - wether expert or novice you'll find something. You may even, like me, be filled with a desire to have a go at tuning your rigging and get it to do more than just keep the mast up. - Charles Anderson."

From "TrailerSailor" (USA):
"His illustrations not only tell you the right way to tune your boat, but show the improper way and the effect it has on the sails. This is a great book to have to get the most out of your sailboat, no matter what the size. ."

From "Cruising" (UK)
"In his introduction, he acknowledges that the book was originally inspired by my own "bible" on the subject, "The North U. Fast Course". I believe, however, Ivar's to be more comprehensive and better value for money. I will urge anyone who takes their sailing seriously to buy a copy."

From Tom Cunliffe:
"I think the book is great. It's by far the best I have seen on the subject, and I wish you well with it. - Tom Cunliffe - (Tom Cunliff is a well known Yachtmaster instructor, author of nautical books and columnist in Yachting Monthly, UK) ."

From "Multihull World" (Australia):
"A massive bonus is heaps of coloured computer generated illustrations covering every, and I mean every, term. Ivar Dedekam's new book really is filled to the brim with every scrap of information that both novice and experienced sailor will welcome as a 'must have' edition to their bookshelves."

From "Good Old Boat Magazine" (USA):
"Introducing Ivar Dedekam's new book on sail trim and rig tuning a compact concise reference on how to trim your sails and adjust Your standing rigging. The best we've seen! ."

From R.P.(Chicago, USA):
"I thought it was one of the best books on sailtrim and rigging I have ever seen. The graphics are clear and the text is well organized. You've managed to cover a lot of topics in just a few pages."

From Clay (Waikanae, New Zealand)
"I think this book is extremely informative and great value for money. I think the quality is outstanding."
