Whether you agree with what they are doing or how they are doing it, you have to admire them for their dedication to their cause. This book chronicles the Sea Shepherds as they seek to disrupt and thus end the Japanese "scientific/commercial" whaling. Their tactics are extreme, some would say dangerous. They seek to intervene rather than just observe. Whether you like this book or not depends on how you feel about extreme environmentalism. If you believe these whales need to be protected by any and all means you will love it. If you think these people are crazy you will hate it. If you think the environment needs protectors but some people go about it in a way that makes all other activists look bad then you will think it is a decent book. There is nothing astounding, no earth shattering revelations or anything like that. It is just a story about people doing what they think is right.
