2.0 out of 5 stars Wave Goodbye!, 5 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Wavewatcher's Companion (Hardcover)
Having enjoyed his previous book 'The Cloudspotters Guide' I bought the latest offering expecting a book entirely about the sea as the jacket design implies. This clearly isn't. It bounces from one topic to another albeit 'wave' related and is in some areas, in an attempt to be humourous, it simply becomes flippant. Not what I expected or wanted and in the authors acknowledgements he states that it was a difficult book to write, it is as equally difficult to read! It will sit on the bookshelf next to the cloudspotters guide as a set but I doubt it will be brought down again.....My fault perhaps, next time I'll read the jacket notes in detail.

This reviewer's main complaint seems to be that the Wavewatcher's Companion covers a broader subject than he was expecting. This was surely his fault for not reading the book jacket, and hardly justifies a 2 star review.
