Deep Sea and Foreign Going – Rose George
I first heard of this title on Radio 4’s A Good Read where it was the choice of comedian Phil Wang. While the subject matter might seem beyond dull the panel were all completely won over.
Rose George puts joins the crew of a container ship and charts the vast scale of international shipping and the industries that exist alongside it: seafaring chaplains, pirate gangs and whale scientists to reveal the hidden industry on which our world turns and our future depends.
