Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great book all round. It comprises of explaining legends and possible miss identifications, and all the more recent weird and wonderful scientific discoveries right up until the 2013 flying squid! The chapters are short so you are not totally overwhelmed with information and are broken up into characteristics, notable species and ocean areas roughly.

The writer also includes the Latin names for all the animals that are discussed which is really useful when wanting to research anything further. The little sketched illustrations add a certain nice quality to the book I appreciated, so with a quick glance I could be reminded roughly of what fish the paragraph was discussing, as there are a lot of worms and squat lobsters etc.

Over all this just keeps my love of the ocean and everything peculiar in it alive and keeps me wanting more information, fantastic contribution! It provides both up to date facts and history of events discoveries and species. Really is a wonderful book :D

This is a must for anybody who likes nature in all its forms. The tales in here are easy to read, very interesting and you find yourself wondering if it is possible that these are here today and if this is fiction, but they are nearly all true, in truth they could all be true as we have not ventured to the deepest oceans and have no idea of what lies down in the dark ocean. A fantastic enjoyable book.

This book is full of interesting fact about life in the oceans. From plankton to blue whales and every thing in between.
