Superb set of insights into the Atlantic Ocean from (geology graduate) Simon Winchester. Themed chapters covering man’s awareness and attitude to, exploration and exploitation of this most familiar ocean, the land and lava beneath it, the air above and the other creatures that live in and around its waters.
Engaging and erudite. A big book but a speedy read. Lots of maps – which you don’t always get in this kind of book.
