|From the review of John Young’s autobiography in ‘Afloat’ magazine:
‘Over the past 85+ years Dr John Young (BA, MA Auckland, MA Oxford, PhD ANU), English-born actor, author, boat-builder, boxer, Pacific historian and voyager, conservationist, environmentalist, community developer, technical educator, and all-round social entrepreneur, has gone down a great many lanes, by-ways and highways. What makes this lengthy but lively life-story of particular interest to readers of Afloat is its connecting theme: building, sailing, and messing about in boats, especially wooden ones.’
What they missed was ‘and genuine good bloke’. For more read https://www.afloat.com.au/2021/09/10/book-review-going-down-another-lane/
