    Full of Captain Lee one-liner gems and "no shit, there I was" stories. The perfect thing to tide you over between seasons of the always entertaining "Below Deck." ...

    A quick, fun read with interesting stories of Captain Lee's life. Yet, the book was also somewhat disappointing. Captain mentioned he had 5 children in the beginning, but it would have been nice to learn how his career affected his family. It would have also been nice to learn how Capt...

    Fun, interesting read especially if you watch the Bravo show Below Deck. I just wish he?d gone more into getting on the show and that first season. Here?s hoping to another book ?Running with the Crazy Yachties?! Lol ...

    Integrity on the high seas Captain Lee has more character and integrity in his pinky finger than most people I?ve met. This book should be mandatory reading for those who feel entitled to anything good in this life. Hard work and integrity are the keys to living your dream, at lea...

    Captain Lee From being a huge fan of Below Deck, I was super excited to read this book from Captain Lee (who I live on the show). He did not disappoint at all. This was a fast read and well written I liked learning about his experiences before being in the show and how he got there....

    Below Deck is my guilty pleasure. Captain Lee only covers the show in one small chapter but his life is so interesting it didn't matter. Plus it was a really quick read, when I had time to read. :-) ...

    This was a really good book. I enjoy the show "Below Deck" on Bravo and reading Captain Lee's back story was great. This is a man that I would love to grab a sandwich with. His take on so many things is the same as my hubby and I and the whole way through the book is was reading parts ...

    I?ve read a lot of books by ?bravolebrities?. Some were really good (Kate Chastain?s Lucky Charming) and some were unreadable (Erika Jayne?s Pretty Mess). This was by far the best. Even if I wasn?t a fan of Below Deck I would?ve still enjoyed this book immensely. Full of ...

    With a sea captain on the front cover, I guess one should expect a bit of sailor's cursing. Captain Lee did not disappoint. Along with tales of debauchery, drugs and drunkenness, this book should stay safely on the adult shelf. However, do not let that keep you from reading about an av...

    4.5 Stud of the Sea Stars Running Against the Tide: True Tales from the Stud of the Sea was a very fun and enjoyable read by Captain Lee. You don't have to be a fan of the show Below Deck to read and appreciate this book. This memoir tells the story of how Captain Lee became a C...

    I love Captain Lee but this was a pretty disappointing book. Only 15 out of 244 pages are about Below Deck--the rest are mostly dull stories about his years working in low-level positions on boats. It is way too detailed about his monotonous life on the sea and not anywhere near enough...

    I won a copy of this book on Goodreads giveaway. This was an interesting memoir of the life of Captain Lee. I just love how Captain Lee is a no nonsense, tell it like it is, authentic person. That is what made me excited to read this book to begin with and it didn't disappoint. I no...

    Loved it! Getting the backstory on someone you admire is always welcome, but with Cappy Lee, it?s a hoot to boot. Funny, honest and illuminating look at life on the high seas, from sailboat, to casino scowl, to mega-yacht. Engaging, enjoyable and entertaining. Good man. Good book. ...

    Was not sure I would like this book. I know about the tv how but have never watched it. What a pleasant surprise--I loved this. It's sort of like an autobiography with lots of intriguing and interesting true stories. I'm not sure how he survived to become a licensed captain. And how he...

    I thought the book was quite good. It makes me want to charter a boat, hire Captain Lee and take off for parts unknown. Unfortunately, I don?t have deep pockets so I?ll have to be content just reading about Lee?s adventures. ...

    Everything you want to know about maintaining a yacht. I loved the television series Below Deck. However if you are looking for any correlations between the show and this book think again. This read like and introduction to sailing manual. It's also just about Captain Lee. Can't he...

    3.5- It was interesting to read about Captain Lee?s life and how he ended up as a captain. I was hoping to hear more about his time on Below Deck, but it wasn?t mentioned until after the 90% Mark in the book. ...

    4.5 stars. This is a quick fun read. I loved all the stories. I laughed out loud several times and would end up telling my husband all about it. It is written just as he talks on the show - with no filter! The only thing I was wanting was a little more was about the show and behind...

    Fun read! This was an eye opening book! Capt. Lee allows us in on a few of the reasons he became a captain of a yacht, his run-Ins with the Coast Guard and a little history of his life with Mary Ann. I respect him more for his work ethic, values and morals! ...

    Didn?t make it through the 1st chapter when I put the book down because of the cuss words in the book. Disappointed that Captain Lee was unable to convey his message without it being littered with bad language. Thought he was smarter than that. ...

    Great book. Every page sounded just like Captain Lee talking the way he does on the show. I enjoyed hearing about how he got started and some of the adventures he's had. If you like the show, you'll love this book! Thank you so much to Gallery Books for providing me with a review copy....
