Being in awe of whales, I was naturally drawn to this book. Having read it, I have a an even greater awe and appreciation of them. Roger Payne invites the reader into his world to see the whales from a scientist, environmentalist and a world citizen view point. This is an engaging book that is both educational and a good 'read'.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
