'This book is a comprehensive text exploring the complete ship construction process through seven sections covering the development of ship types, materials and strengths of ships, welding and cutting, shipyard practice, ship structure and outfitting.' Offshore Engineer, October 2004

'This book has to be the ultimate in ship construction, very informative and in reviewing this volume I can say that during my studies I have come across other books on the subject, but in my opinion none as good as this. A must for all students and those of us who need a little refreshing now and again.'
Nautical Magazine, August 2001

'a very accessible book that makes the reader aware of the many changes in ships and shipyard methods occasioned by technological developments and, in particular, the computer. The subject matter is presented clearly and a great deal of information is contained in the one volume. Those for whom this book is intended will find it very useful for imparting knowledge ina field in which there are few textbooks.'

The Naval Architect, September 2001

'..a useful starter to all students of marine sciences and technology'
Maritime Journal, June 2001.
