About this book

Originally published in 1999 as The Restless Sea: Exploring the World Beneath the Waves. (Norton, New York). A state-of-the-ocean report on the sea and its science. Kunzig draws the reader into a compelling narrative of oceanographers past and present - scientists, pioneers, maverick thinkers, deep water divers and submersible pilots.

"The best account of discovery in oceanography I've ever read."
Laurence Madin, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute
