All the books below I have read - some of them twice. In terms of pure shipping - if you read the three books listed below - you will understand 80% of how all this works. Boom and bust with enough egos to capsize the Jahre Viking.  The Stopford book can be somewhat text book like, but - for all the data contained therein - it is must read if you want a solid foundation within the shipping world. I have read it twice.
