Deep and inspiring,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Illustrated Encyclopedia of the Ocean (Hardcover)
This is a beautiful book that informs, entertains and inspires.
It's got enough in it for most readers, and I suspect if you read the more technical bits more carefully and closely enough for most basic ocean biology, geography and geology courses. It's one of this books you will learn something new from it each time you open it. It's a book that will grow with people- starting with enjoying the pictures and gradually understanding the text better over time.
The pictures and graphics are superb, and the text brief,focused, and works completely with the pictures.
This is the kind of book that Dorling-Kinderseley excel at producing, and I can recommend it to anyone even a little a bit curious about what's going on in the oceans.
