An unashamedly personal, prejudiced and certainly not comprehensive view on maritime books worth having on your shelf. I am a real sucker for books - much to my wife's dismay - so hopefully I have made enough mistakes in buying them to help you avoid doing likewise. The ones listed are all good value, and the star rating runs as follows:

Please note that I may not agree with the star ratings listed at Amazon, and that some of the books are only available used.
Anyway, the books have been categorised as follows:
