      Great book, very well written if you love the sea/ocean PLEASE read this

      Sylvia Earle is a well-respected oceanographer, biologist, explorer, and policy maker. She has done great things with her life, and all along the way held everything in balance. Kids, grandkids, family memoriesUnfortunately for me, that's not why I bought the book. Still, I learned more about them than I did about the sea. This is an autobiography with a short chapter at the end pleading for a "sea change", but besides the ominous warnings that were not commonplace knowledge in 1995 sprinkled th [...]

      PUSH THROUGH THE INTRODUCTION!!! I almost quit reading this book before it even started. But once I got through that and the first chapter things got a lot better. I just finished reading this book in October 2013, much of what she talks about occurred in the 40's, 50's and 60's with a smattering in the 70's and 80's so much of it is outdated at this point. I would love for her to do an update, a 2013 edition if you will. So much has changed since then, for better and worse. For example, she dis [...]

      Sylvia Earle is one of the most gifted and determined ocean scientists of our time. That comes through clearly in this book, along with a host of interesting facts about how the history of the oceans and how human's wasteful habits are sadly affecting them to detrimental ends. But I confess that the book did not hold my interest in some sections. Maybe I'm just not interested enough in backroom science dealings, but for me Earle goes too deeply into her funding processes and inter-personal relat [...]

      Dr. Earle is one of the world's most respected biologists and oceanographers and wrote this book in 1995 about the oceans and her experiences therein. It is part autobiography, part description of underwater wonders and exploration, and part huge red warning sign about the dangers our oceans are facing, namely us. The very scary thing is when this book was written, currently 16 years ago, pollution, overfishing, and poor ecological practices were pushing our oceans closer to collapse. Now that a [...]

    6. Kristen Gunther on said:

      This is my favorite Sylvia Earle thing, I think. This book blew open my ideas about the ocean way back in the day, first of all by shooting to hell all the graphs I had to memorize for class about fisheries and maximum sustainable yield. But I look back on it now for the bigger picture it painted and how it nuanced my thinking about wildlife management, the sea, and environmental policy. The organization falters sometimes, but the message and the story are pretty important. Pluse was a female ma [...]

      sylvia earle is a childhood hero (i finally got to see her speak recently!) and this book is worth my childhood veneration. she, of course, speaks in a more hopeful voice than i think is accurate as she is attempting to make change - but she still paints a pretty ugly picture in terms of overall ocean health. she takes human consumption to task pretty hardcore for such a mainstream author and longtime high level government science/policy official.

      Sylvia Earle is one of the most gifted and determined ocean scientists of our time. That comes through clearly in this book, along with a host of interesting facts about the history of the oceans and how mankind's wasteful habits are sadly damaging these fragile ecosystems. But I confess that the book did not hold my interest in some sections.I'd recommend the book to anyone eager to learn about oceanography and marine biology.

    9. Janice on said:

      I wouldn't normally have picked this up, but I read it in prep for an interview with Sylvia Earle. It was an eye-opener, even though the book was written more than a decade ago. I daresay not a lot has changed in terms of the ocean's overall health, and thanks to Earle's lucidity, my complacency has deserted me.

    10. Laurie on said:

      I have been carrying this book around with me for years - and not many books have traveled with me through all my moves. Dr Earle's experiences as a female oceanographer & marine biologist is not only facinating but is inspiring. The changes she has seen in the oceans in her career are also very thought provoking.

    11. Elizabeth on said:

      This book combines a look at ocean pollution with Earle's story. Easier to read than Silent Spring, but (unfortunately) not as influential. Another one among those that made me want to be a science writer. And I had the opportunity to meet Sylvia Earle, what an inspiring character!

    12. Suzq on said:

      I got to meet Sylvia Earle at the All Taxa Biodiversity Conference where she was guest-speaking and I presened my college seminar research findings. She's very nice (and short!) and her years of research of study impressive. I picked up her book later and enjoyed it. Everyone SHOULD read it.

    14. Katie Fisher on said:

      Packed full of information, incredible, inspiring, moving book. All should read, simply as a necessity to know what is going on in the least explored area of our world.

    15. Stephen on said:

      Essential reading for everyone. Transcendent for those who stay close to the ocean.

    16. Asha on said:

      This is an incredibly good book that could truly inspire a sea change. I highly recomend it!
