BOOK REVIEW • Oceanology: The True Account of the Voyage of the Nautilus

Clarice M. Yentsch Charles S. Yentsch
First Paragraph

Oceanology: The True Account of the Voyage of the Nautilus is whimsical and fun, yet treats oceanography with the respect and evidence-driven conclusions of The Oceans by Sverdrup, Johnson, and Fleming (1942). This “ologyworld” book (see http://www.ologyworld.com for additional “ology” books) mentions on the back cover that it is suitable “for ages 6 and up.” We saw this statement and purchased the book at the History of Diving Museum as a gift for a child’s sixth birthday. We were so taken by the book that we returned to the museum the following day to get a copy for ourselves. It is now on our bookshelf next to Jules Verne’s classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Matthew Maury’s Physical Geography of the Sea (1855) and Manual of Geography (1870).
