A solid treatment of the subject. Sekulich hits the ground running mostly in the Straits of Malacca and goes face to face with pirates and their opponents. The result is an eye-opening portrait of a significant maritime problem. It does fall flat on the question of what to do. Sekulich doesn't have a real idea, nor does anyone he interviews.

Tales of modern-day pirates operating in all parts of the world's oceans. Unless students are really into this subject, this book probably won't get read. May be a good source for a paper on modern-day piracy. More of an adult read.

I had some ups and downs because sometimes in the book it was getting born and then interesting. But when the book got boring it was hard for me to keep reading but i didn't want to skip because in them boring parts it be a lot of information.

It was an interesting read about modern pirates. A little slow at times, but I learned so much about the commercial shipping industry and parts of the world I know so little about.
