really liked it

I wanted to read this book because I know minimal about the ocean let alone it's floor! I learned a lot! I was afraid the book might be too dry but the author did a wonderful job creating a story around this woman, Marie Tharp. An intelligent, eccentric, dedicated woman passionate about map making. She loved creating maps even of her own home. It's a shame she was not given the attention she deserved in being the first person to create a map of the ocean floor but she was honored later in life. Kudos to Tharp and the author who brought her to us.
