Mr. Hendrickson recounts events otherwise hard to find in print.

Mr. This book should be on every sailor's shelf, whether he is a weekend yachtsman or makes his living from the sea. As the title indicates, this is a true almanac; it contains facts about the ocean itself, the atmosphere above the ocean, the terrain below the surface, the creatures it contains, and events and accomplishments man has attained while working and playing in and on her depths. I keep a copy at home, on every vessel I own, in my office, and with my dive gear at all times.

by. Hendrickson, Robert, 1933-. Of course its impossible to contain the ocean in a book, but The Ocean Almanac comes very near to doing just that. This entertaining, informative almanac offers essays, anecdotes, facts and legends, all pertaining to the earths oceans: life in the seven seas, from the humble plankton (the absolute bottom of the food chain and hence the basis of all life on earth) to the mighty blue whale (the largest creature ever to live on the planet); sea monsters, from Jonahs great fish.

  • Print was far too small to read, even with reading glasses. Teeny tiny. This is why I love Kindle - I can just enlarge print when needed.

  • Good.

  • I love this book! I got it on time and it is in great condition! Thanks so much!

  • The book is in great shape. its a fun book to have and will probably take a lifetime to read!

  • Book was in excellent condition and shrink wrapped. Thank you for the superior service.

  • I came across a copy of this book while on a week long live aboard SCUBA diving ship. You don't read it cover to cover, if you have some time just pick a topic and have at it. I've purchased several copies of this book to give as gifts to other ocean loving friends. It will always have a place on my bookshelf.

  • For anyone who is curious about the oceans and waters of earth, this book makes for an interesting and information filled read. It is one of my all time favorites, and I probably go back and re-read it a couple of times a year.

    The book is broken up into short articles on a wide variety of marine, maritime and oceanic subjects.

    It is a light read, but that makes it enjoyable enough to go back to again and again. A textbook it is not !

  • I hunted for a book exactly like this after reading two titles (Deep Atlantic, Monsters of the Sea) by Richard Ellis. I was looking for something that would, like Ellis, recall me to my sense of wonder. This book can do that to some extent, but it's got a major flaw: a great deal of the information in it is simply out of date. It's especially flawed for marine biology; the supposed senseless ferocity of certain creatures reads like a 1960s children's book you found in the library. I'd recommend this to a person who wants a collection of classic sea yarns and who isn't especially sophisticated as a science reader.
