Book News
A personal memoir of a marine biologist's encounters with marine mammals, written for a general audience. Collet (director, Center for Research on Marine Mammals, La Rochelle, France) shares the experiences that drove her into her field from watching the films of Jacques Cousteau as a child to her first encounter with a wild dolphin off the coast of France. She paints a picture of what it means to be a marine scientist today: the challenges of searching for funding and working with difficult coworkers tempered with the joy of feelings of connection with the ocean and the thrill of discovery.
