About the Author
Peter Compton's dream of bluewater cruising finally became reality when, after 20 years in the Aerospace industry, he quit his job in 1986 to build a small catamaran and sail south with his family in search of sun and sand. Some 11 years and 20,000 miles later, the Comptons have settled in the British Virgin Islands. With a background in troubleshooting that includes several years as Engineering Department Head analyzing complex system designs, Peter now applies these skills to the marine diesels he deals with every day. Peter's current project is an independent and informative website that covers every aspect of marine diesels. Visit it at www.boatdiesel.com.

The hardcopy is great, but I had hoped to carry an electronic copy on my phone so I don't have to bring the physical book on bareboat charters, etc.
Alas, there also seems no way to "return" the kindle purchase. BOO!
This book is a really good starting place. It is very clear and concise. I find it easy to read and assumes you don't know much about marine diesels - which i didn't, at least before i read it!
Each chapter is basically half basic theory, and half trouble shooting algorithms.
For the beginner, it's a must have, in my opinion. For the seasoned pro, they might find the theory parts a bit basic but the trouble shooting guides, i would imagine, would be very valuable. I think when things go wrong and the engine does not start, having a clear path to trouble-shoot the problem is helpful, especially when the stress level goes up and clouds the mind.
