Another interesting publication on the contemporary maritime piracy shedding some more light on the current situation and concentrating of the real hazards and dangers associated with the shipping industry of today. The author of the book, John Burnett, sailed alone and was attacked by the maritime pirates passing one of the world's busiest waterways.

Luckily he managed to survive and the experience he gained at that time served as a basis for this work telling readers the truly shocking first-hand story. Nowadays the pirates sailing across the oceans has actually noting to do with the colorful, brave and some kind romantic cutthroats that are commonly painted by the popular history books and movies.

In fact the modern pirates are rather local seamen or former seafarers who are recruited by some crime entities looking for the quick score. The publication provides interested readers with the new and fully up-to-date information. We would recommend it to all people from the maritime shipping industry as well as to the ones with general interest in maritime world. Even people far from shipping will find something interesting in the pages of this really breathtaking sea tale.
