books and errrr....persuasive material

I'd hate to be called male chauvanistic but...... I need to get hold of some material for my partner to read. I know some of you out there might relate to this. I need to persuade my partner that a sailing life is for us. She likes the idea.........sort of. When it comes down to cost she is more materialistic.
Are there any books out there that anyone can recommend which highlight a successfull transition from house to boat whereby a couple have exchanged their home for (an example... a charter business) or life aboard a sail boat?
I'm not looking for things to happen over night but a little light persuasive reading matter might help
Going on my last post, there doesn't seem to much in the way of courses out this way although there is a boat show in Christchurch at the end of the month!
Thanks in anticipation

I just read a good book called The Essentials of Living Aboard a Boat by Mark Nicholas. It does a great job of talking about the issues that may be worrying her--like storage, comfort, etc.
