In the wake of the Ever Given megaship grounding in the Suez Canal last month countless people have asked us what lessons will be learned from this to prevent maritime disasters in the future.

Historically authors of maritime disaster books, men like Captain Felix Resienberg, provided the answers. Men like Resienberg were asked to testify at marine hearings, consulted when new laws were written by organizations like the IMO, given honorary positions at maritime academies, and paid by shipping companies to improve operations.

Today, despite the fact that disaster stories remain international bestselling books and are the basis of blockbuster movies, the majority of mariners and shoreside industry workers do not read them. works with a lot of wellknown authors and few, if any, have even been invited to visit the IMO or to speak at shipping companies like Maersk.

In this video ’s founder and author of Fire On the Horizon, Captain John Konrad, looks at some of the most important maritime books of all time and answers the question: Can books still teach us how to prevent disasters at sea?
