The protagonist accidentally pulls the Baltic Dry Index up on his Bloomberg, and ends up on an adventure investing in ships in various ways. I won't spoil the plot, but it's a rare business book that has pirates as a reasonable plot device. Besides the fast paced plot, the book is also an excellent primer on the shipping industry

The book seems to be at least partially autobiographic.

When restless New York City hedge fund manager Robert Fairchild watches the Baltic Dry Cargo Index plunge 97%, registering an all-time high and a 25-year low within the span of just six months, he decides to buy a ship.   Immediately fantasizing about naming a vessel after his wife, carrying a string of worry beads and being able to introduce himself as a "shipowner" at his upcoming college reunion, Fairchild immediately embarks on an odyssey into the most exclusive, glamorous and high stakes business in the world.   From pirates off the coast of Somalia and on Wall Street to Greek and Norwegian shipping magnates, the education of Robert Fairchild is an expensive one. In the end, he loses his hedge fund, but he gains a life - as a Shipping Man. Part fast paced financial thriller, part ship finance text book, The Shipping Man is 310 pages of required reading for anyone with an interest in capital formation for shipping.

The is a novel that tries to educated the reader on the shipping industry and the financial markets that shippers use. First, the novel part is pretty weak. What Harvard educated hedge fund manager would ever invest in shipbuilding without any prior knowledge? The main character invests sight unseen with a Greek cold caller? The set up is unbelievable as are the other encounters through the book. Second, the industry and finance stuff is better. However, there is so much to understand, that you have to read some passages many times just to try to understand what the concept is. Terms like Adcom and Bunker come up and sometimes the author will re tell what they mean and sometimes not. A glossary at the back of the book with definitions and examples would be helpful. And it would be nice to see a flow chart of revenues and costs for a ship. As for the finance part, this got pretty confusing. Who gets this fee and that fee and who gets charged for this and that was tough to follow. If you don't know how the debt markets work you will get lost. Again, I could really use a flow chart and explanations in the back. There is no way the author could enhance the descriptions in the novel or it would ruin the flow of the book. Overall an ok book.

This book should be enjoyable for anyone interested in the shipping industry. The main character functions as a "mr Exposition" for the reader as he learns about shipping from scratch, thus many of the basic economic principles, as well as a lot of the politics of shipping are baked into the story.
The story and the main characters themselves are quite enjoyable, with some clever twists along the way, and a good conclusion of the plot.
The style is mildly satirical, and generally lighthearted, which certainly helps the book.
All in all as someone who works in shipping (on the technical side) I definitely enjoyed it. It should be said though, that this isn't in any way "epic prose" but a low-key little work that tries to be both informative and entertaining, and succeeds in both.

I LOVED this book. Despite the occasionally childish dialogue, the absurdity of the story made it a very enjoyable read. I read the book in one sitting and was laughing from the first page to the very last chapter. I would say a lot of it was a bit unrealistic, so probably not a good read for someone looking for an informative story that will get hung up on the details but would highly recommend to readers looking for a fun book about finance and shipping.

Through the Novel, McCleery has an interesting medium in which to introduce a large and important topic to a mostly ignorant public. The reader will likely gain an appreciation for the shipping industry, and also pine for better writing.

Interesting book weaving business, Wall Street and international intrigue in the world of shipping. Enjoyed the book snd the journey of Robert as he deals with failure while pursuing a dream and ultimately achieves success beyond what he ever would have dreamed of. This is one of those books once you start reading you can’t put down. I would recommend this book for those that like to read about business leaders who share their unique journeys. I just bought the second book Robert Fairchild wrote and am looking forward to reading

A pretty unique if simplistic story about a venture within the shipping industry. Good story. What wasn’t simplistic however, was the detail regarding the financial engineering involved in some deal making towards the end, an obvious indication of the authors background.

I enjoyed it.

Great novel that is a realistic and satirical take on the hedge fund industry and the shipping industry. As a finance professional, i couldn't help but laugh at the characters and their actions and arrogance. This is definitely a book to re-read.
I really enjoyed this book and feel I learned a little something about the industry at the same time.
