Most ridiculous how-to book of all time? "How to Avoid Huge Ships"

Plus the price, $872.93, makes this book a steal


And the reviews are nice:

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for dyslexics, February 2, 2013

By Karlosd - See all my reviews

This review is from: How to Avoid Huge Ships (Paperback)

After suffering for years, I bought this in the naive hope it would help regulate my bowel movements. A disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now I know what that steering wheel thingy is for, January 30, 2011

By Cap'n Crunch - See all my reviews

This review is from: How to Avoid Huge Ships (Paperback)

This book really is one of the best huge ship avoidance references I've come across, not just for the effective methods it teaches as to avoiding huge ships, but also for exploding some of the huge ship avoidance myths that many of us take for granted.

For example: - Do not charge the huge ship at full speed in an attempt to scare it off. This may work with coyotes, but it is less effective with huge ships.
- Similarly, do not roll your boat over and play dead. Unless the huge ship is captained by a grizzly bear, this will not work.
- Do not attempt to go under the huge ship. This is typically not successful.
- Do not attempt to jump over the huge ship.

Captain Trimmer presents a rather novel technique for avoiding huge ships - move your boat out of the path of the huge ship. I know what you're thinking, this goes against conventional wisdom, but Trimmer presents significant empirical evidence to support his theory. Indeed, over the long run, moving out of the way will dramatically decrease the number of huge ship collisions you will have to endure in your daily life.

Read this book before going on vacation and I couldn't find my cruise liner in the port. Vacation ruined.

Is this an actual image from the book?

If so, this guy is an old school troll

I'm a little annoyed with the sarcastic "reviewers" of this book. You all seem to think it's funny that some people would honestly like some expert advice on ways to avoid huge ships. What, you've never been traveling at a very, very slow speed straight toward something really, really big that you could see for miles and miles away, and wished you'd known what steps you could take to avoid crashing into it? Well, all I can say is "congratulations!" What's it like to be so perfect? You haters just keep on enjoying your huge-ship-collision-free little fantasies. I for one am going to buy this book and learn something, because I live in the real world, where huge ships and the dangers they present to people like me are actually a serious issue.

There must be some sort of middle ground we can meet on when it come to Avoiding Huge Ships
