Factual analysis, no sensationalism 11 Jan. 2014
By JohnBoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author takes a methodical approach to understanding how failures at sea or in harbor occur. He breaks them down into causation categories such as fire, sinking, etc. Each section includes a case study of an actual loss, briefly explaining what happened, why, and what could have been done to prevent the tragedy. The book makes a number of recommendations for improvements in industry standards, while admitting why the economic realities of industry tend to frustrate their implementation.
