The book by Philip Hoare is covering the whaling industry from a very broad perspective. It should be noted that it should not be treated as a pure biology textbook, and that was not the author's intention. This is an easy to read publication about the whales and whaling in general, filled with interesting facts.

The work reveals so much of useful information about whales and their history and is a sort of footnote to Melville and his Moby Dick novel. The readers are offered to learn a very interesting history of the actual interaction between humans and whales. The content is very well thought owing to the great experience of the author.

According to the review by Mark Kurlansky, the books is unpredictable, amusing and informative. It is a lively travelogue through the real history and lore of the whales called kings of the sea, a moving and truly extraordinary volume that will be greatly appreciated by all environmentally and socially conscious readers anywhere in the world.

Just have a look and we promise you will be taken away with how the author describes the subject. Numerous professional reviews of the book conducted by the world recognized experts support the opinions of the general readers and recommend the title.
