How can you go wrong?,
This review is from: My Father, the Captain: My Life With Jacques Cousteau (Hardcover)
Really - Jacques Cousteau is one of the truly unique persons who helped define the 20th century. Almost through him alone did we all learn about the world of the ocean. Jean-Michel was there for so much of the exploration as Jacques always knew his life's work should be shared with his family. Buy this book if you have ANY interest in Cousteau. There have been other biographies, but consider the source and the respect of the writer for his subject. It's a bit sentimental at times, but I grew up with Cousteau's articles in National Geographic, his show, the "Undersea World of..." and so nostalgia and sentimentality is part of the whole Cousteau ethos.
