    Fantastic book with wonderful insights into the naughtical world!

    I didn't think much when I opened this book, but was soon engrossed in the pages. Roger Huff's wit and humor make this a fast read. I'm still chuckling!

    Captain Bucko's book is a Must Read!

    If you've ever wondered where many of our everyday popular expressions come from, Captain Bucko has the answers for you. In his book Roger Huff describes in a fascinating and humorous style hundreds of words and expressions which all have nautical origins. And the author is no landlubber merely doing research at a library; he is an experienced seaman and professional oceanographer. I would recommend the book to anyone who is interested in the origins of nautical terms and everyday expressions.
