Reviews

"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 "
