Review:

Oceanic aficionados, nautical buffs, and photography fans, ahoy! Gear up for the full-gale force of The Book of Waves. With more than 100 oceanic photos, from the pounding pipelines of the Pacific to the bright coral cacophonies of the Caribbean, this spectacular photo-essay is a beach lover's delight. Along with stories from crusty seaman who braved some of the century's harshest storms and harrowing accounts from professional surfers, The Book of Waves includes technical descriptions of wave cycles and three-dimensional illustrations. What's more, the text is generously sprinkled with water-related quotes from Lord Byron, William Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, and Rudyard Kipling.
