$2.99 TED E-Books Delves into 'Deep Water'

Grossman's Deep Water is likely to prove a valuable teaching tool also for those wanting a deeper understanding of the sea-level rise and of how serious scientists come to study and understand it.

—Bud Ward, The Yale Forum on Climate Change & the Media

Sea Level Rise Dramatized

Of course you know that polar ice sheets and glaciers are melting, and that as a result, sea level is starting to rise. But once you take in a new multimedia book, Deep Water, by Daniel Grossman, you'll feel the changes in your gut. You will also have a good sense for how scientists are measuring what's happening, allowing them to predict how high sea level could ultimately go.

—Mark Fischetti, Scientific American
(This review refers to the multimedia app version of Deep Water)

Deep Water

We know that sea level rise is an inevitable consequence of the global warming that our continued burning of fossil fuels is causing. What we don't know is how much to expect and how soon to expect it. Journalist Daniel Grossman in his Kindle Single, Deep Water: As Polar Ice Melts, Scientists Debate How High Our Oceans Will Rise, explores the momentous issue by looking at the work of three scientists who study the past history of elevated sea levels to get a better understanding of what is likely ahead for humanity. Grossman writes from a close acquaintance with climate science and his ability to distil the science in readily understandable form for the general reader is outstanding.

Grossman's short book is science journalism at its best, informative, accessible, and yes, entertaining. It's an intriguing first hand glimpse into paleoclimatologists at work, piecing together the results of their research, sometimes conflicting in their conclusions but pointing undeniably towards grave consequences for humanity if we set in train the disintegration of the world's major ice sheets. There is clearly warning enough, in spite of the uncertainties, that the danger is real and may already be in process. That's the seriousness underlying the highly readable narrative in which the book is cast.

—Bryan Walker, Hot Topic
