"Pirates, by nature, aren't terribly literate. As a consequence, no book can hope to fully prepare the pampered, modern-day layabout for the lusty life of a pirate. This book, however, will put you on the right path—the path to adventure, treasure, glory, mystery, and, every so often, the bottom of a barrel of rum." —Excerpt from the Introduction of The Captain Jack Sparrow Handbook
