5.0 out of 5 stars This book could save your life! Reviewed in the United States on 10 May 2013 Verified Purchase I'm very much scared of ships. I live over a hundred miles inland and at 6,000 feet elevation but one can never be too careful!
One hopes Mr McLaughlin never meets up with a modern-day Fitzcarraldo!
(I have a vague idea that this book won a prize for most pointless title, or something similar)
