Editor's Pick of the month

Secrets of the Seas Secrets of the Seas
by Alex Mustard and Callum Roberts

For his latest book, accomplished underwater photographer Alex Mustard has teamed up with Callum Roberts, a professor of the underwater environment at the University of York and an author of two award-winning books on the oceanic environment. Between the two of them, they've produced a worthy publication that is more than merely a tome of spectacular images. The commentary is both informative and enlightening, and Roberts' explanations about the undersea world draw on geological history, human history and the recent rise in human planetary influence. It's an unusual take.
