Jim Davis's obsession with ships began at the age of 3 or 4 and thereafter he develops this theme with vigour, but there is an appropriate blend between career and personal elements. He describes the dangers and circumstances of his childhood war experiences, with his somewhat protracted bachelorhood and relationship with his mother and her death. He goes on the describe his loved wife and family, details of his years in shipping to the present where there is no longer any major UK shipping company left. He is engaged in the real Global Maritime World. The Author gives us a fine mix of the amusing, the poignant and the dramatic.
