Book Review: The Silent World

The Silent World
By Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau with Frederic Dumas

Written by the "manfish" himself, Jacques Cousteau describes his career under the sea. From the invention and production of the first aqualung to the exploration of sunken ships and treasure, the reader participates in each journey with Cousteau, due to his beautiful writing style and description, and expertise in everything ocean. Recommended for the adventurous and curious, be prepared to be swept away.
