Ocean - An Illustrated Atlas

The New York Times recently published an article about Sylvia A Earle, the co-author of National Geographic's "Ocean: An Illustrated Atlas". After reading this article about Earle, I was very intrigued by her book. As an ardent book lover, I always have space on my shelf for more books, and now I can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this one. Amazon promises me "key concepts, points of interest, and little known facts [...] [a]stonishing full-color photographs and diagrams [that] reveal the beauty and complexity of ocean life. Unprecedented new full spread maps of the ocean floor—hand-drawn by expert cartographers—reveal the five major oceans in astonishing details." It sounds like this atlas will serve as a great resource to help me better understand the oceans that I am working to preserve.
