The Extreme Life of the Sea is a book that spins tale after tale of the secretive world of the ocean. The Prologue opens with a story that reads like a scene from a movie with a whale battling a Giant Squid, in a fight for each other's life. Each chapter tackles the fastest, the strangest, and the most bizarre. It reads like a thriller but each story rooted in hard science. If you have a lover of the sea at home, this would make an excellent gift. The father/son team of Stephen R. Palumbi and Anthony R. Palumbi have crated a glorious book but you don't have to take my word for it, watch the video below to see the book come alive.
