Not worth the time

Really found this boring. Write up makes it sound like there would be stories of "man" against the sea, but there was more of man against man. Don't bother with this one.

Whales

Very interesting story on a way of life and protection of a whale species. This story alone and its balanced approach makes this book worth reading.
