Reviews - What do customers think about Oceans (The Wonders of Our World)?

Cover Is Misleading  Dec 22, 2008
In the past, I purchased Volcanoes (The Wonders of Our World), and I was so impressed that I was excited to purchase this one from the series.

However, I was extremely disappointed with the content. There is only two pages that have anything to do with ocean life (and they don't even have real photos -- just low-quality illustrations) -- there was more information on different ships that cross the ocean, and environmental issues (ex: whaling), than descriptions about the oceans themselves.

I bought this book expecting information on coral reef eco-systems or volcanic fissures on the ocean floor (or even the differences between the oceans), not a book lecturing on the impact of the fishing industry, etc.

If I wanted a book about the effect of humans on the environment, I would have selected something else anyway.

Don't let the cover fool you -- you won't find any information in the book describing anything in the photo.

The only reason I gave it three stars is because Morris is a good writer, and the book is well-orgnized, even if it seems off-topic.
