9780070442375: The Great Waves: Tsunami
From Library Journal:

Myles starts out with one advantage: the devoted audience for books on natural disasters. Another advantage is his firm understanding of the science behind his subject. He explains well the topography of the ocean and the geology and physics of tsunami, popularly called tidal waves, along with tales of tsunami and their effects. These storiesthe meat of the booksuffer from constant hyperbole (``towering walls of death'' abound) and undocumented descriptions of people's thoughts and actions. But readers who can overlook the exaggerated style will be rewarded by fascinating material: stories garnered from all parts of the world and the last several centuries, plus an excursion into prehistory for the eastern Mediterranean cataclysm some tie to the foundering of Atlantis and Biblical events.
