it was amazing

Wow. Scuba diving, the Red Sea, exploration ... what else can a girl ask for? This girl, anyway! My favorite bits of this book were the ones that revealed how much diving (and biology) has changed in the past 50 years. No more riding turtles, ripping out gorgonia, or petting cuttlefish. The "crunch of coral" is a bad thing these days. And oh, this book is so French - Cousteau talks about all the bottles of wine they brought with them on their adventures. Point me towards the ocean!

Ðɑηηɑ hey Tiffany! I am currently thinking of studying marine biology, and my teacher said this book is fantastic. But I am not sure how much it talks of marine biology... how is it?
