First Paragraph

Apparently provoked by some of the current claptrap in the popular media, Bruno Voituriez has written this book, for a general audience, about “the history of the discovery of the Gulf Stream and its science.” His scope is actually much broader, extending to the climatology and paleoceanography of the North Atlantic. He makes three good points; otherwise the book falls short.
