Audio Book Summary

For this rousing, revisionist history, the former head of exhibitions at England's National Maritime Museum has combed original documents and records to produce a most authoritative and definitive account of piracy's 'Golden Age.' As he explodes many accepted myths (i.e. 'walking the plank' is pure fiction), Cordingly replaces them with a truth that is more complex and often bloodier.

    Basically a rehash of movies, myths and hearsay. Not much original content and a very shallow description of pirates and their perceived lives. There is a section of pirate ships which seems to be more original but the diagrams in an audio book are, well there are no diagrams in an audio book.
