A cadet embarking on a career at sea or in another marine related business will be required to gather an enormous volume of knowledge. The art of and practice of seamanship is one of the most encyclopaedic jobs descriptions around.
Recently, it appears that shipping has moved at a great pace and left us wondering how it would be possible to capture such a wide range in one publication that will appeal to the forward thinking seafarer. This is exactly where this book positions itself and is presented as a manual for the modern day seafarer of the 21st Century.
This publication takes the traditional values of good seamanship and blends them with today’s reality.
This book provides a very broad scope and further study of the topics that are covered in the book are available in the 600+ publications available from Witherbys. owning this book shows that the reader wants to know and understand more about the shipping industry and how it keeps the world moving, carriers more than 90% of the world trade and is set to almost double in volume over the next 20 years.
This is an outstanding book and a necessity for anyone embarking on a career at sea and I would highly recommend it.
