Container shipping.

Sounds boring, right?

Wrong!

Themed chapters, with a strong emphasis on the people involved – the captain and crew; the pirates and those who police them; the ports, the passage; flags of convenience and the consequences.

Super easy to read. Stuffed full of facts.

I shall watch the container ships offshore from Walton on the Naze in a more informed fashion – and all thanks to Phil Wang’s recommendation on¬†Radio 4’s A Good Read!
