Robert  Hofrichter - Under the Spell of the Ocean


"An unforgettable excursion – that's a promise." Robert Hofrichter

1,337,323,000 cubic kilometres: that is roughly the total amount of water contained in the oceans of this world – gigantic bath tubs that hold not only artists and poets in their spell but also marine researchers and biologists.

Robert Hofrichter is one of them, and here he tells fascinating stories about the wet cosmos enveloping the earth. We read of strange life designs and peculiar sexual practices in a battered ocean, make the acquaintance of friendly sharks and bad-tempered dolphins, find out more about monster waves, monsters living in the deep and the story of the source of all life.

This is a book as exciting as a dive deep down to the bottom of the sea!
