Whether you are fascinated by maritime disaster or have a placid curiosity about waves, Mr. Raichlen's book offers a rich variety of information in brief. To his credit, he has decided to go into the science carefully and seriously. He does so in clear, straightforward prose that addresses the complexity of waves in the real world, not just the idealizations of textbooks. Mr. Raichlen admirably avoids the razzle-dazzle that too often pervades the prose of popular science books; his tone is uninflated and plain-spoken.―The Wall Street Journal
About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
One oddity of layout is that a number of pages are black with large white text to emphasize points made in the text. I would have preferred pictures rather than repetition of the text.
All in all, I enjoyed the book.
PS: a great textbook reference is "Wind Waves, their generation and propagation on the ocean surface" by Blair Kinsman, Department of Oceanography, John Hopkins University.
