Easily the largest collection of pirate Biographies I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I received this book as a gift years ago and have used it hundreds of times since to find additional information on obscure and little known pirates - especially on the much overlooked early Mediterranean pirates.

The bios are much shorter than I would like for them to be (a paragraph or two for most entries), but still a very useful source of information - A must have for any Pirate history buff!
