First Paragraph

“Don’t give away that book!” so exclaimed my 12-year-old daughter after seeing The Deep: The Extraordinary Creatures of the Abyss sitting next to the desk at my home office. Amid books on ocean turbulence, numerical modeling, and fluid mechanics, The Deep stood out. Its large format (~ 26 x 31 cm) and stunning photographic collection of sea creatures made it an instant hit with my family. Since arriving, The Deep has been sitting on my coffee table, thumbed through by kids and adults alike. I sat down and read it cover to cover.
