This is a pretty good starting point for anybody concerned about the breadth of issues currently facing the health of our oceans. The book is beautifully laid out with some fantastic photography and doubles nicely as a coffee table book. However, it also reads like a bit of a brochure for Oceana, the conservation group that Ted Danson fronts. If you want something that offers more regarding these issues and is enjoyable to read, I would direct you to works from Carl Safina and Four Fish by Paul Greenberg. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Most people know Ted Danson from television and movies, but fewer realize that over the course of the past two and a half decades, Danson has tirelessly devoted himself to the cause of heading off a looming global catastrophe--the massive destruction of our planet's oceanic biosystems and the collapse of the world's major commercial fisheries. Here, Danson details his journey from joining a modest local protest in the mid-1980s to his current status as one of the world's most influential oceanic environmental activists, testifying before congressional committees and the World Trade Organization, and helping found Oceana, the largest organization in the world focused solely on ocean conservation. And he describes what has happened to our oceans in just the past half-century, ranging from the ravages of overfishing and habitat destruction to the devastating effects of ocean acidification and the wasteful horrors of fish farms.--From publisher description.… (more)
