Reviews like this show exactly what's wrong with the world: people only care about themselves. Never mind your vacation! This book is the long overdue answer to a huge but little-acknowledged problem. I just wish icebergs were literate (a good topic for Capt. Trimmer to explore in future volumes), and that "How to Avoid Huge Ships" had been available for them back in 1912. The course of history, then, would be drastically changed: 1500-odd lives spared, no maudlin overlong disaster movies or Celine Dion shrieking about her heart, and maybe - just maybe - our unsung hero, Captain John W. Trimmer, would have the recognition he so richly deserves.

I was a millisecond away from spraying pineapple juice all over my monitor.
Well played, sir.

I laughed so hard, I got broadsided by a huge ship. I need to re-read this book!

Seriously, one of the funniest comments I've ever read. The image of someone crying to the point of laughter... hilarious.
