However, I found this to be just right for me. Yes, it is rather basic and aimed more for junior level, but if that is what you are looking for then this is exactly what you need. After all, there's a reason why this is an "Essential Guide to the PRINCIPLES [...]". It's not supposed to be extremely in-depth. Rather, it is a great starting point from which one can take the desired road when it comes to further reading, whether it is trade finance, shipping, insurance, or whatever.
The book explains things in simple terms and flows nicely most of the time. If I had to think of things I disliked about it, it'd probably be the fact that on very specific occasions it can be bit dense to read, or the use of language can be a bit convoluted or poor. However, this is nothing to preclude extremely useful knowledge (as well as genuine enjoyment, at least in my case) from being reaped.
I would definitely recommend it.
