Quotes and reviews

"Both now retired from teaching, Eyres…and Bruce…update their textbook (first published in 1971) from the 2007 edition. It introduces ship design and shipbuilding practice to advanced undergraduate students of marine sciences and technology. It can also be used as a study guide for the Extra Master examinations, and as background for students of shipbuilding itself."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
