All Piss and Wind by David Salter

Book Description

Salter writes with engaging affection, good humour and knowledge. Nobody tells a yachting yarn better' Sir James Hardy OBE This is a book about the excitement of sailing. The characters, the adventures, the disasters and the quiet little drink afterwards. No sport generates more anecdotes than ocean racing. It's a world rich in bizarre incidents, outrageous behaviour, intense camaraderie and engaging humour. The author, David Salter, is Australia's leading columnist and feature writer on the sport of offshore sailing. Drawing on a treasure-trove of stories and lifetime of personal involvement, he provides a firsthand, deck-eye view of a world where the line between fun and survival can be perilously thin. All Piss & Wind carries the conviction of experience and the authority of knowledge all enlivened by the author's sure ear for humour.

Media We Deserve by David Salter Media We Deserve, Paperback (August 2007)

Our media tend to deal in prefabricated versions of reality - false assumptions of habitual values rather than open-minded observation. This work is about the major entities of the Australian media, their roles and influence in our lives, and the issues of journalistic practice that shape their content.
