Handful Book Jan. 19 2013
By Alexandre Winkler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book covers a wide range of subjects and it is not limited to sea transportation. A potential reader should examine the book beforehand by taking a look inside where he or she will have an idea as to the above subjects. I just regret that the author mainly cites examples and data regarding the UK reality, including a number of legal provisions and quite specific issues. At any rate, most of the concepts presented throughout the book apply to every professional into the sea transportation and port operations areas.

The first chapters look into very basic concepts, whereas the final ones are more specific. Chapter 13 (named "Safety") covers an up-to-date subject that has been of great concern all around the world. Chapter 15 (namely,"Ports") was of great interest to me, particularly because very few books cover such subject. It is the type of book for a reader to purchase and keep shelved for future reference.

When I was taking a Diploma course in Logistics this book came in very handy. To this day I still read it.
