Ship Design and Performance for Masters and Mates is a particularly useful textbook for those students new to the subjects covered, as well as proving a useful quick reference text for professional practitioners. With clear and concise explanation, it is informative yet easy to follow. The numerous worked examples and clear diagrams will aid the student's understanding. Students will appreciate the photographs, list of formulae and nomenclature. For those with examinations to pass the supply of typical examination questions, revision one-liners and hints on how to pass examinations will be particularly welcome. - Nicola Pryce-Roberts, Liverpool John Moore University, UK, July 2004 "This books is a concise guide to the principal process involved in the design of a merchant ship and the procedures for conducting sea trials to ensure that the ship meets its design criteria...This book exceedingly good value with a lot of information and examples that are relevant for those who wish to follow a career in operating or managing merchant ships." - Seaways, January 2006 "The title of this book should not be taken too literally. While Dr. Barrass indicates that his book is directed at masters and mates, there is excellent material here for a much wider audience. I am inclined to encourage every shipowner, shipowner-to-be, ship builder and ship designer to have this book on his shelf." - Marine Technology, April 2005
