Must Have Books & Software
These books are a must for any armchair, potential, or preparing cruiser. Without most of these books on hand you will never be able to prepare or follow your route around the world.
I have also listed some useful software titles that I have found invaluable. This is not a complete listing of software as it is too expensive for my budget to buy all of them. But of those I have purchased these are the ones I recommend. I have also listed the few that I found to be a total waist of time and money. They were either not as advertised or not at all user friendly. As you can imagine as a programmer for the past 10+ year I can figure a programme out pretty quickly. So, if I have trouble with it you can guess what sort of fun you would have.
