“Shipping is the biggest industry in the world,” asserts Alan Marsh, former CEO of Braemar Seascope, in the foreword to this hugely ambitious book. It seeks to provide an overview of all aspects of shipping, from maritime geography and the types of vessels you’ll encounter to its history, practitioners and key aspects of accounting and laws of carriage. In the process, it does a superb job of demystifying what is still, as Marsh rightly notes, a largely “invisible industry which does not register on most people’s radar”.
