If you are not an ardent environmentalist after reading this book, then there is not an ounce of humanity within you. It consists of a series of short stories/histories of people with an intimate history of experiences with the ocean. They talk factually yet passionately about the negative consequences to the oceans of human actions to the oceans. I pride myself on being environmentally aware yet there were some forms of damage that I was unaware of. For example, the shedding of sunscreen by beach bathers is destroying coral reefs and that many of the sea animals die when they ingest pieces of plastic as they mistake it for food. The plastic lines their digestive tract and they literally starve to death.
Perhaps the most disgusting consequence is what is known as the Pacific Garbage Patch in the North Pacific Central Gyre. The currents transfer the trash from the Pacific Rim into a central location and the area of floating plastic is greater than the size of Texas. Other problems such as overfishing and the levels of mercury and other toxins in sea animals are also covered.
The people featured in this book range from scientists to activists to entertainers, some are in more than one category. Despite the dire reports and the expressions of frustration, there is a tone of optimism. In places where the detrimental activities have been banned, most of the areas have recovered. We know what needs to be done to help the oceans return to the way they were, the lack is in the political and economic will to do it. All of us can contribute to the solution, what is needed here is to get away from the "my little bit won't help" mentality. Each fewer piece of garbage that ends up where it shouldn't damages us all.

One of the best environmental books out to date that I have seen. There are a tons of things in this book that I was not aware of. In the US we alone use 2 million plastic bottles every 5 minutes. There are more fish in our oceans contaminated with Mercury. Tuna and Swordfish are at the top of the marine food chain that have the highest Mercury. It really makes you think twice. All of us need to step up and take care of our environment. No one else is going to do it for us. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
