Go Green

This book is for everyone, not just for sailors. It’s all about water – starting with the history of the planet and ending up with the water from your tap. Marine conservation, wildlife, rockpools, crabbing, how to get electricity from water, the weirdest creatures that live in the ocean, and plenty more besides…. writing this book made me think about water and the sea in an entirely new way, and I hope you will too. There is a lovely and very comprehensive review on http://goo.gl/WhBM4

The book is now in its second edition, expanded and improved with the thumbs up from the cruising experts at the RYA.
