5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Metaphor for the Lessons of Life Nov. 20 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I bought this book as a joke while attending a government management seminar at the Maritime Institute of Technology (located in Baltimore Md). I remember thinking to myself "you know life is tough, but it is even tougher when your stupid". Here is a book written by an old captain who is tired of running over fools in their pleasure boats, and wants to educate those same fools in a futile effort to save their lives. One can almost imagine a sequel written by a train engineer "How to Avoid Parking on Train Tracks". At any rate for several years now this book has graced by desk, and has served as an inspiration for more conversations than any other book I have ever owned. Remember as you go through life you need to keep a lookout for the huge juggernauts that can really ruin your day.

5.0 out of 5 stars INDISPENSABLE Sept. 21 2013
By Jet Lagged TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I would be lost without this book.

I carry it with me in my back trouser pocket at all times. Even in the bath.

I mislaid it once, the book not the bath, and had to spend several weeks walking around the main street with snorkels and flippers. Luckily the book turned up and I could breathe properly again.

Or at least I could, once I finally got the snorkels off.
