About this book

Henry Stommel has interesting and often original views about life in general and science in particular, some of which shine through in the anecdotes and 'one-liners' that enliven every chapter of what will doubtless and deservedly prove to be a highly successful attempt to explain important aspects of the ocean circulation to a wide audience. Science Suitable for any reader from first-year undergraduate to Nobel laureate. Choice
