How do some people overcome fears and insecurities to manifest their dreams? What are the characteristics that allow them to completely transform their lives from one of stability to one of uncertainty and adventure?

Willing to risk all, Jacobson spent six years sailing into the unknown where the unrelenting oceans served as a teacher of seamanship, personal strength, and perseverance.
In The Boy Behind the Gate, the author reveals those crucial steps that will motivate you to make your dreams come true. We are each given one great opportunity at life. What are you going to do with yours?

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Frustration at his bitching and griping, i could care less about his sexual inclinations, but the constant moaning from a man with all of the toys a man with a 50ft boat could buy and none of which he could fix! Just drove me nuts.
