David A. Kaplan's previous book (to "The Most Dangerous Branch") was about venture capitalist Tom Perkins and his drive to build the biggest, most expensive, most high-tech sailboat in the world.



Apparently, if you don't collect rare wines or breed race horses or restore WWII airplanes with your billions -- and you can't stand the thought of doing something good with your lucre -- then you race yachts.  Conspicuous consumption doesn't get any more conspicuous than this.

Half fascinating.  

Half appalling.
