Reviews

"A hero...Moore is the first person to have pursued serious scientific research by sampling the garbage patch."
--The New York Times

"The author is an impassioned, fiercely inquisitive writer, detailing the many unorthodox ways he's managed to get these issues into the news and in peer-reviewed science journals. His account is chilling, but with an underlying message of optimism: If human behaviors change, we can still save the oceans, and ourselves. Fast-paced and electrifying, Moore's story is "gonzo science" at its best."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Captain Moore set sail across the pacific and saw what others missed, a plastic plague upon the ocean. This great new book explains that groundbreaking discovery and how our throwaway culture is devastating our sea life."
--Laurie David, author,

"In Plastic Ocean, readers join Captain Moore on journeys through history, into science labs and to remote parts of the ocean - revealing information both fascinating and incredibly important. A must read for anyone who likes a good adventure and wants to tackle today's pressing environmental problems."
--Annie Leonard, author and host, The Story of Stuff

"An ocean's hero's call to action."
--Forbes.com

"Highly readable, thoughtful, honest, and determined, Plastic Ocean is a book with staying power."
--Booklist
