Summary

This is an audiobook for those who want to understand better how the water surrounding us affects our daily lives, how it imperceptibly but crucially shapes our actions and has shaped our landscape for millennia. It's for anyone who knows and loves our coast and who wants to understand, discover, surf or sail it better.

Inspired by his own witnessing of the power of the sea through travelling around Britain's coastline in a panel van with his young family, William Thomson tells the story of the cycles of the sea. He combines a lyrical, passionate narrative with graphically beautiful renderings of the main forms of water which affect Britain: rip, rapids, swell, stream, tide, wave, whirlpool, tsunami.

The Book of Tides is an audiobook for all of us who feel the pull of the sea and the tug of the tide.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
