A good compilation of cases from which to learn admiralty law. There is a lack of editorial commentary (for those who seek to teach themselves the subject). The book lets the cases do the teaching. Overall, the book is a good survey of important admiralty decisions, but if you seek a reference guide for practice, look elsewhere. If you wish to become a true student of the practice, then read from cover to cover (which is mostly cases).
