I shared "Coasting" with a man I've known for close to fifty years. He's still involved in the Australian shipping industry and this is how he responded:

"Congratulations. An Engineer who can work with words, not just objects, is a rarity.
This made a worthy read on my laptop on the way to work in the morning. You get across a lot of insider knowledge of what makes this industry tick, without being [to my biased perception] tedious or laboured in doing so. That takes a lot of doing."

From a man who has devoted most of his working life to making the industry a better place to be, it is a review to value.
