Chapman's is more of a reference than a teaching book... not really all that well written if you're trying to learn to sail. Seidman is far better.
Best of Sail Trim is for racing, and if you don't know the basics, all it will do is confuse you. Have to have a foundation before you can start to finish the roof.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
