For the millions of fans of Jimmy Buffett's music as well as his bestselling books, Tales From Margaritaville and Where Is Joe Merchant?, here is the ultimate Jimmy Buffett philosophy on life and how to live it.  As hard as it is to believe, the irrepressible Jimmy Buffett has hit the half-century mark and, in A PIRATE LOOKS AT 50, he brings us along on the remarkable journey which he took through the Southern hemisphere to celebrate this landmark birthday.          Jimmy takes us from the legendary pirate coves of the Florida Keys to the ruins of ancient Cartegena.  Along the way, we hear a tale or two of how he got his start in New Orleans, how he discovered his passion for flying planes, and how he almost died in a watery crash in Nantucket harbor.  We follow Jimmy to jungle outposts in Costa Rica and on a meandering trip down the Amazon, through hair-raising negotiations with gun-toting customs  officials and a 3-year-old aspiring co-pilot.  And he is the inimitable Jimmy Buffett through it all.          For Parrotheads, for armchair adventurers, and for anyone who appreciates a good yarn and a hearty laugh, here is the ultimate backstage pass -- you'll read the kind of stories Jimmy usually reserves for his closest friends and you'll see a wonderful, wacky life through eyes of the man who's lived it.   A PIRATE LOOKS AT 50 is a breath of fresh air and a ingenious manual for getting to 50 . . . and beyond.

An excellent read, interesting and well written. Glimpses of JBs fortunate life that he made for himself and the insight that this guy is more pilot and sailor than singer-song writer. I also leaned more about the Caribbean and its history. He weaved his trip, early life, and regional facts together well. ( )

Mr. Buffet describes his adventures flying around the Caribbean in the early 1990s. He tells a few interesting stories, but, unless you are interested in aviation or planning a trip to the areas he discusses, it is not a worthy read. ( )

Love his books! He always takes you on a wild and wonderful journey! Great for laid back summer reading or when you need a trip to warmer climates! ( )

This was a typically unique Jimmy Buffett experience whereby he weaves his personal "songline" into an entertaining narrative to be enjoyed by Parrotheads, fishermen, "flying boat captains", and anybody with an adventurous spirit! I gave this 5 stars for the sheer entertainment value...it may not be a literary masterpiece, but it's a lot of fun!

I once read a review that stated that this is more of a man's book. As a woman, however, I found these sections very interesting. Granted, flying planes and fishing aren't my hobbies, but learning something new is always fun. I don't think gender should influence one's decision to read this book - just keep an open mind!

...and I especially enjoyed the vivid explanations of Caribbean history. ( )

Although I'm not a big Buffett fan I liked it. It was very much a stream of consciousness journal describing his life. It contains a lot of humor and his exploits flying his twin engine seaplane around the Caribbean.
There are many fun things to quote and some points he made might even reflect some of the lifestyle I would have liked to have included as my own.

We sit together through the evening and discuss the things that each has saved for the other to hear. We talk of pegasus - and of how he had died, quietly one night in his stall, for no reason that anyone could every find. --Beryl Markham, "West with the Night"
