At the first glance, this publication may be thought of as the nice and interesting one, devoted to a single vessel. However, should the reader have a bit more thorough look and study the content of the book, he or she will immediately note that the Christopher Maynard, the author of the book, did a remarkable job and included so much of basic useful information which every naval history enthusiast ought to know.

At the same time, it shall be noted that the publication is very easy and pleasant to read - it makes the book truly excellent for children due to the way in which various details have been explained. The book starts with the intro expanding into a brief description of the way in which ships and boats float, sail and steer. This part is followed by the section dedicated to the triremes and riverboats, yachts and ferries. There is a separate chapter for the engines, powerboats and lifeboats, tugs and container vessels, cruise ships and tugboats, and even underwater vehicles.

Note that every section of this book contains minimum one cutaway view of the ship in question and some of them are supplemented with the exploded view of decks. Definitely one of the best books on this subject available today.
