Observations of readers include:

” . . . the book took-over from where Basil Lubbock left -off about the early big iron ships; it is a more interesting read than the title suggests . . .”

“. . . unexpectedly, full of human interest . . .”

” . . . much more interesting than run-of-the-mill maritime books. I am onto my second read of it . . .”

“Having just finished GONE . . . . I found it very enjoyable from start to fish”

“. . . I was given GONE as a birthday gift . . . it’s a very good read”

. . . there are previously unpublished letters and notes; all in all, a good working of a history, from the days of sail, written by an enthusiast”. (Editor of a UK Maritime Journal).

” . . . this was an ideal birthday gift for my husband, he was enthralled . . .”
