Description

We all have a sense of the sea. Even if you have never been in or on the sea, you know what it looks and sounds like. But we can sense something without understanding it. In A Sense of the Sea, sailor and oceanographer Dr. Brian Whitehouse presents the sea we grew up with, and the one that is coming. Read this book to rediscover the sea, and to realize how you obtained your sense of it. The story focuses on the heyday of oceanography, that four-decade period when we had a fathomless thirst for discovery, the Soviet Union was in our shadows, Rachel Carson defined our sense of environment, and the adventures of Jacques Cousteau took us to unknown worlds.

Holiday Closing Alert! Memorial Day, 2020

As amazing as it is, this year, for the first time ever,  we're going to be closed for Memorial Day!

That means we're going to be closed, Saturday-Monday May 23rd-25th,  2020.

I know what you're thinking--what???  The whole country's been closed down for two months!  Whaddya mean, you're taking off?  Well, we haven't been closed.  We've been here working harder than ever, due to a wildly increased demand for our services, so honestly, the Crew and I desperately need these days away.  No telephone calls or emails will be answered.  The admin office needs a break.  We'll be back, everything to the ready, the morning of Tuesday, May 26th, to get cracking.  Thank you for your support and understanding.  And please, don't forget why we honor Memorial Day.  We should never--never--forget The Fallen.  

For those of you already in production, the production crew is running full steam; Judith (QA--Quality assurance, our Princess of Perfection) and Jay (Our Doyenne of Customer Delight) will be here and working, checking books and sending them out, so please, don't worry.  It's just we lazybones in the admin office that need a break!
