By James S. Dodds on March 2, 2004
Format: Hardcover
This is, literally, one of the best books I've ever read. Beautifully written, full of adventure and information. Takes you back to the early days of the Calypso, and details the invention of underwater photography, archaeology, oil prospecting, bathyscaphe diving... the goodies just keep coming. A great world tour of the oceans both above and below, told through the words of oceanographers who are as much poets as scientists.

Best Diving Book I've ever read. "Silent World" was amazing, but the writing is much better and the stories much more absorbing in Cousteau's "The Living Sea".

I love this book, but this particular item arrived with ripped cover and in a very fragile state. I'm don't feel comfortable handing it for general reading. I wish I'd known how fragile it was before buying. Nevertheless, this title is a treasure and I'm still proud to own it. For reading, I may have to look for an eBook version so I don't have to endanger my printed title.
