The Book: Stop Paddling / Start Sailing by Roger Smith


"I found your book extremely interesting and uplifting: the mixture of personal experience, story and plain advice means that it is a pleasant as well as an informative read. I should like to buy the copy you loaned me... it’s looking a bit dog-eared now." Teifion Davies, Senior lecturer in community psychiatry, London


"Stop Paddling/Start Sailing is an resourceful work of literature that draws upon the imagination, and opens up areas of enlightenment. The literary style will keep your interest allowing you to turn each page with ease. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a new perspective on how to view life and its challenges." C. Fowler, North Carolina
