We think this is shaping up to be something really quite special * DEN OF GEEK * This riveting account spares none of the detail and paints fascinating portraits of the desperate young pirates. The film, starring Tom Hanks, opens this month and if it is half as tense as the book, it'll be unmissable. * DAILY MAIL * For once, the good guys won. * BOOKLIST * I share the country's admiration for the bravery of Captain Phillips and his selfless concern for his crew. His courage is a model for all Americans. * BARACK OBAMA, President of the USA *
