My two boys (12 & 14) found this book online and, being the huge pirate fans that they are, begged me to buy it for them. Naturally I did and, when they received it, they wouldn't put it down! After reading it they are both convinced they could now be pirates!! My wife and I read through the book and, I have to admit, it was incredibly entertaining, not to mention filled with a plethora of facts and information. The author, a pirate expert and a pirate museum owner, most definitely knows his stuff. Too bad there's not a Discovery Channel program based on this book... I'd watch it! Bottom line: I highly recommend purchasing this book.
