4.0 out of 5 stars Good depiction of the life on a merch vessel, 9 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A good read and full of interesting insights into the trials and tribulations on board the vast carriers of the ocean. Not quite sure why the author got quite so hung up on the whales (and I never tire of seeing dolphins, whales and all sea life on my travels), perhaps another book dedicated to that subject would have been a better ploy rather than spending an entire chapter of a book which is meant to be about shipping. Still, it is an important matter ... I just feel it was overstated on this occasion.
That said, one of the most striking things for me was the authors mention of the lack of response to those in distress. I witnessed this myself just last year as the only vessel (a yacht) to respond to a mayday and, without proper resuscitation equipment available we lost the casualty after an hour of CPR. Were we miles from other aid? No. We were in Gibraltar bay, surrounded by ships, pilots, ferries, etc ... all, probably, with defibs these days ... no-one came to help. MAIB enquiry results? There wasn't one.
Anyway, I digress. A good read, informative and well written.

Okay, but not the greatest quality. Mind you, as it was only a few quid I can't complain. Good starter set.

Look okay and, at a reasonable price, should be fine. Only time will tell if they are durable or not.

Not a particularly good story, poorly written and not to be recommended. Don't waste your money on this poor effort

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A pretty good read, well written and clears up a lot of the misconceptions people have. A good place to start learning about freemasonary (or you could just ask a mason)

Eye of the Storm: 25 Years in Action with the SAS

5.0 out of 5 stars Tells it as it is, 23 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
He pulls no punches in this account of his service with 22 ... warts and all. More importantly, he puts other authors of SAS books in their place as writers of near fiction ... McNab and Ryan amongst others. I already knew that 'McNab' had told a tissue of lies in Bravo Two Zero as a good friend is Ex 22 and was involved in some of the operations written about (and my mate also features in a book called Freefall by Tom Reid - which is worth a read). Anyway, I digress ... Back to this book. Well written, clear and honestly put together account of a young man whose life is going nowhere until he joins the Para's, his descision to go for selection and his subsequent rise through the ranks of the worlds most elite fighting force. A must read for anyone who wants to know about the world of Special Forces without all the hype and self glorification of some, so called, factual authors.

Good bag. Plenty big enough for purpose ... in fact it's huge. Handy carrying handles and strap. Packs away neatly into itself when not in use.

4.0 out of 5 stars good enough, 4 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lock good enough for the job and fine for the price. As someone else said, it only has numbers 1 - 6 and not up to 9 as shown in the picture and therefore loses a star for not being as described and having reduced possible number of combinations.
