It's the first book by David Giersdorf, founder and president of Global Voyages Group and a former senior executive at Holland America Line, Windstar Cruises, Paul Gauguin Cruises, American West Steamboat Co. and Exploration Cruise Lines.
'I’ve been working on the book for years as a way of paying forward the lessons of my business career and life. When COVID-19 arrived, I knew it was time for the message in "Hard Ships,"' Giersdorf said.
Strategies for any situation
According to the cover notes, 'Hard Ships' repurposes Giersdorf’s hard-learned strategies for any situation, from pandemics and market panics to everyday personal change. A clear, practical and immediately applicable guide, it offers step-by-step guidance with diverse, real-life examples to navigate dark storms, make sense in the fog and steer back into clear waters.
Published by Giersdorf Group LLC, it's available on Amazon and from Barnes & Noble in hard or soft cover, Kindle version and as an audiobook.
