About the Book
We all have a sense of the sea. Even if you have never been in or on the sea, you know what it looks and sounds like, assuming you watch television or movies, or like to read. But we can sense something without understanding it, and most of us grew up unaware of major advancements in our knowledge of the sea. Some of us even grew up thinking there are seven seas. In A Sense of the Sea, maritime author Dr. Brian Whitehouse presents the sea we grew up with, and the one that is coming. Read this book to rediscover the sea, and to realize how you obtained your sense of it. The story focuses on a four-decade period when we had a fathomless thirst for discovery, the poetic words of Rachel Carson defined our sense of environment, and the adventures of Jacques Cousteau took us to unknown worlds.
