Reviews & Awards

Kirkus Reviews

“A brief history of undersea exploration, followed by an account of a voyage of the submersible Johnson-Sea-Link…. The excellent color photographs are reproduced with startling clarity, while the subject has elements of romance, danger, and high technology….”

The Midwest Book Review

“…More detailed than most explorations of undersea science, this book will appeal to audiences who already have the basics of natural history under their belts, and who want specifics on how scientific discoveries are made.”
