1, 3 Selected Sections of this only.

2 This is awesome book.  Really mostly a listing of shipwrecks, their locations, and general description of event.  Locations are in Loran coordinates, so you need to use a Coast Guard free software program to approximate GPS.  The pages list 5,000 different shipwrecks, mostly with coordinates.

4 This is mostly a dictionary (which I didn’t read LOL).  But – the introduction section was educational.

5 Unbelievably enlightening book if you can believe it (Professor Feyman wouldn’t josh us, would he?!)  Good read. It lists his collaborations with A. Einstein and Neils Bohr during the A-bomb R&D period).

6 35 – 50 percent text, and the rest of it mainly consists of charts, diagrams, and pictures. It’s almost a must read item for environmentalist, esp ocean matters related.

7 If nothing else will convince you to use only sunflower or coconut oil for your deodorant, this will.  Actually, I don’t know if those oils are OK or not, since the book describes the bad stuff more than the good IMO.  I use the sunflower stuff myself (in the commercial stick form), but it is really messy to the point that I’m thinking about going back to the chemicals.  Works tho 🙂

8 Have read other of this woman’s books (a few years ago).  Always informative.

9 This was a little dated by the time I read it (2019).  Still, I picked up a few factoids from it.
