A humdrum nature book. Nothing about it is particularly bad, but neither the writing nor the photography is inspired.

I will never forget the first time I snorkeled in Key West, first in the ocean and then in mangroves, and the absolute peace and wellbeing I felt afloat and watching the life under the sea. This book has gorgeous photos and powerful words for conservation of the ocean. Amazing and inspirational.
