Editorial Reviews

Review

“its most important virtue is the writing: clear, succinct and absorbing. It has something rare in a reference book: a voice. John Farndon tells a good story, he doesn’t mince words in his conclusions, and he’s not afraid to be funny..."—Bill Kowinski, North Coast Journal
(Bill Kowinski North Coast Journal)

“with good writing and photos, this book repays the time (and angst) involved. Information on separate topics is valuable and fascinating, but even more important and impressive is this comprehensive view of the great waters, three-quarters of our planet, and three-quarters of ourselves.”—Bill Kowinski, North Coast Journal
(Bill Kowinski North Coast Journal)

"Informative and engaging . . . Outstanding color photographs and authoritative, accessible text define the Atlas of Oceans, which is recommended for public and undergraduate libraries."—Nancy Cannon, Booklist
(Nancy Cannon Booklist)

Format: Hardcover
Maybe because of the natural and man made disasters going on recently I have been on a nature kick recently and this is one of the best books on the topic of oceans I have seen in a while. Don't laugh - but this book "Atlas of Oceans: An Ecological Survey of Underwater Life" reminded me of the scene in the move "Soylent Green" where Charlton Heston finds that luxurious book called "Soylent Oceanographic Survey Report, 2015 to 2019" and kind of made me want to buy it because of that connection because it does seem like we are living on the cusp of a "soylent green" future and this book will serve to remind me how it used to be.

"Atlas of Oceans" is an excellent introduction to the geography and inhabitants of the world's oceans.

I have read several books about the world's oceans and this one is one of the more recent and up to date. There is a strong emphasis on how humans are affecting the various eco-systems and what we need to do to save them. It also introduces you to many of the plants and animals that live in the oceans.

"Atlas of Oceans" is one of the best books I have read about ocean life.
