"A delightful read, for both mariners and non-mariners alike! Despite having over 25 years in the Royal Canadian Navy, I learned a few new terms reading this book. The author, who first introduced me as a very green Ordinary Seaman to the Naval world, has done a wonderful job capturing the unique nature of Naval speak. I would recommend this book to any new and even seasoned sailors to gain a better understanding of life at sea."
-- Commander Jason Karle, OIC Sea Training (Atlantic) - Patrol, RCN
"Today's RCN needs this book as a bridge between the experienced sailors and the new entries ... An outstanding resource!"
-- Chief Petty Officer Chris Radimer (retired)
"It's wonderful to see such an outstanding collection of the words and phrases I have passed on to many young sailors in my forty-three years of naval service."
-- Chief Petty Officer Fred Haight (retired)
