5.0 out of 5 stars All you need to know about the Sea and the Oceans, 5 April 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: The Sea Around Us (Oxford University Press Paperback) (Paperback)
The Sea Around Us is wonderfully written and it's a must for all who are fascinated by the sea and the oceans.
Tides and tidal bores, land and underwater rivers, volcanoes, tidal waves, el nino, the impact of weather etc, how our oceans work around the world - east to west and pole to pole - it's all there, clear and concise yet easy to follow.

This review is from: The Sea Around Us (Oxford University Press Paperback) (Paperback)
Wonderful book. You'll never think of the sea in the same way again.
Carson effectively started the conversationist/ecology movement with this title and Silent Spring.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dive into it!, 7 July 2014

This review is from: The Sea Around Us (Kindle Edition)
I found this book following the Google Doodle honouring Rachel Carson's environmental awareness work. I was struck by how beautifully written this was. The description was evocative, and while it was a scientific book, the narrative flowed quite nicely. Somehow the content was highly educational but avoided the 'lecture' style. Because there is no proper 'story' to the book, I have been reading it on and off simply whenever I am in the mood to be transported into a deep ocean of discovery.

This review is from: The Sea Around Us (Oxford University Press Paperback) (Paperback)
Good condition and dispatched promptly. Carson's work commands both literary and scientific merit. Eloquently written, this book engages even the not so scientific reader.

This review is from: Sea Around Us (Hardcover)
I bought this copy for my young friend's 15th birthday. It inspired me as a child some 50 years ago! Updated illustrations and a magical book.
