The author tends to stray from the subject of the book. I understand that he is trying to place the circumstances surrounding the whaling industry into prospective, but I found the tangents distracting and took up too much of the book. I did not need to know about the rise of Quakers in New England nor the beginning of the petroleum industry in Pennsylvania. I would have preferred concentrating more on the whaling ships and their plight.
