"Ship Stability: Notes and Examples will be an invaluable text for those students studying the subject for the first time. It should also prove to be a useful reference tool to seagoing personnel and shore-based staff involved in ship handling." Nicola Pryce-Roberts, MSc Maritime Operations Programme Leader, Liverpool John Moores University, June 2003 "By revising the classic Kemp and Young book, Dr Barass has brought to marine students valuable material in the ship stability domain... the author succeeds in transforming the old stability notebook into a very good self-study book that includes good explanations with very clear sketches, so that 'anyody can do it himself.' Captain Eli D Shiran, Seaways Journal, June 2002 "Those who have found (Ship Stability for Masters and Mates) helpful will also find the present publication useful. For each topic covered, Dr Barrass sets out the basic theory involved and then illustrates this with numerous worked examples." E C Tupper, The Naval Architect, May 2001 ' introduction to the topic covered that will be suitable and useful for both those who are newly at sea, and those whose practical experience is limited to narrow areas and wish to expand their knowledge.' Maritime Journal, March 2001.
