5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than your usual travelogue......., 30 Sep 2013

This review is from: Ninety Percent of Everything: Inside Shipping, the Invisible Industry That Puts Clothes on Your Back, Gas in Your Car, and Food on Your Plate (Hardcover)
Much better than your usual travelogue, Rose George plunges head first into unfathomable world of shipping and freight. A mixture of adventure, including first hand experience of 21st century pirates and piracy, the dodgy practices of shipping lines hiding behind the financial and human abuse of the flags of convenience, and a real insight into the day job carried out by countless souls traversing the worlds shipping lines trying to earn an honest wage, whilst delivering our new tele or ipad. Rose George manages to crunch the scale of this huge industry down into a more definable, understandable and comprehensible form, whilst giving it a vibrance and taking none of its importance away from our daily lives. I really enjoyed this book, its honesty, its humour and its sheer scale, a great read....!!!! Highly Recomended.....!!!!!
