    Written in 2012, and only 28 pg in length, this book includes so

    Written in 2012, and only 28 pg in length, this book includes some good information for tourist, including IAATO rules allowing only 100 people on land at any one time & "expect a 60% success rate on landings" (due to weather)  
    I found the section "Antarctica, Is it really in danger?" more than a little odd. It included the surprising statement "...the earth which is thousands of years old (some even say billions)." The author goes on to conclude we don't really know much about  so called global warming.
