    1. Hardberger has quite a background. With a Master’s from the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, he has been a ship captain, “newspaper reporter, English and history teacher, crop duster, private investigator, maritime lawyer, flight instructor, ship surveyor, commercial aircraft pilot, sailing instructor, insurance adjuster, vessel repossession specialist, filmmaker, oilfield mud engineer, stuntman, ship breaker and even a drummer in a blues band.” That would seem to provide lots of material for sto [...]


    2. What a way to earn a living! If you ever thought your job was too hard, too dangerous, underpaid, or just plain nasty, you should read this book and then decide how bad you really have it! If you are a manager and you've ever thought you didn't have enough to work with to make ends meet, you should read this book! If you just plain enjoy tales of the sea and the men who go there to make a living this book's for you too!I personally think that any story about what men are REALLY willing to do for [...]


    3. What the hell?I have never read a book so poorly written that I just couldn’t stop reading.I learned a great deal from this book, not only about what it’s like to captain a tramp trader in the Caribbean but also about what truly awful writing looks like. I hope Max Hardberger never reads this review (I am, in fact, a little bit terrified of Max Hardberger at this point) and if he does, I hope he understands where I’m coming from. I don’t get the impression Mr. Hardberger is trying to wri [...]


    4. When retired captains sat around drinking and swapping sea stories, Max noticed he always had the topper for Worst Ship, Worst Port, and Worst Owner. Then he noticed they were all about the same few cruises and decided to write it up. This is a view of the bottom end of the shipping industry, a senile tramp freighter hauling trash to Haiti. Max tells it well and made me enjoy the tales of fixing leaking hulls, fending off corrupt port officials, and talking unpaid crew into not jumping ship.


    5. Documentary account of hauling bulk cargo in the Caribbean on a rotting old ship. There are stories of corrupt officials, drunken captains, sleazy agents and dishonest charterers who are always borrowing against their next cargo. Hardberger knows the wily ways of the sea and spins a bunch of good yarns, without taking a moral or accusatory stance by and large.


    6. Read this as background for a movie script about Paul watson of Sea Shepherd fame. Max Hardberger has a larger than life carreer to match his name - stealing back tramp steamers and freighters impounded in foreign ports. Sweaty oily and 100% authentic.
