Although a very interesting story and well told, I found the tone of this book frequently switched from dry university text about minute details with regards to helicopters and ships, and then to a more emotional story of human struggle and survival. Both are important, but not in the same book. I found myself glossing over paragraphs and sometimes whole pages about mechanical technicalities, just so I could get to the actual story of what happened about the sinking of a cruise ship - which is what I thought book was supposed to be about. Fortunately - that part was very well written. It held my interest and conveyed the magnitude of the situation with powerful language.
