The Joy of Cruising is Paul C. Thornton second book. He considers it a labor of love given his burgeoning passion for cruising, and the enjoyment he got out of interviewing, writing profiles about, and sharing the stories of passionate cruisers from all over the world.

The Joy of Cruising is a stark departure from his first book, White Man?s Disease, a ?gripping and inspiring? award-winning memoir about Paul?s ?harrowing? brush with death, his journey of recovery from a traumatic event, and ultimately liberation from a 30-year old ?curse.?

Yet at the heart of both books is passion, and how passionate people do wondrous things.

Originally from New York City, Paul is a university administrator who lives in Fort Myers, Florida with his wife Cheryl, and considers cruising with their grandkids life?s ultimate escape.
