What an interesting book by Andrew Britton. I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially as it brought back many memories of the many times I sailed into New York Harbour whilst on the Cunard cargo vessels berthing at Pier 32.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Captain's Duty, 13 Jun. 2013

A very well written record of the events surrounding the piracy of Maersk Alabama off East Africa. Captain Phillips displayed the leadership expected of a professional mariner. Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Titanic, a fresh look at the evidence. by John Lang, 14 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As a someone who has read a library of Titanic books and seen the films, I shuddered when I read notice of publication of another new book on the subject. Very topical, on this the 100th. anniversary of the disaster and also following the recent Costa Concordia catastophy.

But this is a refreshing analysis of this ubiquitous incident by John Lang the former Chief Inspector of the UK's Marine Accident Investigation Branch which seeks to answer just two questions:- Why did the Titanic collide with an Ice berg? and, Why did so many people lose their lives?

Applying his MAIB expertise, Lang's new book offers a fresh look at the evidence that was produced in the US and UK inquiries after the disaster and which tends to have coloured our thinking ever since.

In his forward to this book which can be found at [...], Michael Grey, ex-Editor of Lloyds' List, provides a more detailed review and critique than I can ever hope to achieve.

The book Titanic by John Lang, ISBN978-1-4422-1890-1 is available in hardback from Amazon etc., but as yet is not available as an e-book. It is well worth the read and not just by Titanic aficinado's. It is a must for all those who have been assciated with Marine Accident Investigation

1.0 out of 5 stars Hephaestus Oil Tankers including Exxon Valdez etc, 21 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
For anyone seriously interested in Oil Tankers, this book is rubbish.If I had known how poor I would not have bought the book. If this is an example of Hephaestus publications I will not be buying any more. It totally fails as "a new publishing paradigm, allowing disparate content sources to be curated into cohesive, relevant and informative books".
This book lacks a cohesive structure being an uncoordinated series of data copies from other sources without any attempt to edit or validate whether the information is correct or not. In a number of sections the same information from the same sources is repeated.
To all intents and purposes I conclude that Hephaestus Books are a total scam and I am surprised that Amazon and other well known booksellers are listing such poor material.
