A personal narrative spanning close to sixty years of a carrer in shipping - from the author's humble beginnings in Chios Island in the 1930s, to apprenticeship and early work in London in the1950s, and futher to the establishment of a highly respected practice in Piraeus from the 1960s onwards until the early years of the 21st century.
My liaison with John Koilalous goes back to quite some time and his constructive approach to matters involving issues of insurance claims and other relative shipping aspects in general, will be long cherished. I am sure that his book on such matters will prove a most valuable guide to all concerned in the service sector of shipping and, as such, it can be highly recommended.
