About This Item: 
If we were able to listen under water, what would we hear? What would we learn? How would it change us? With erudition and charm, marine scientist and orator Bill François takes us on a deep dive into the secret lives of the world's aquatic creatures, from musical whales and immortal eels to the cod that discovered America and the herring that almost caused a military conflict --to name but a few. We hear the songs of seahorses and scallops, eavesdrop on the conversations of lobsters, and swim in the glow of the fluorescent jellyfish. A poetic blend of ancient myths, modern science, and storytelling through the ages, Eloquence of the Sardine is an invitation and guide to a dreamlike underwater world where the legends are often more believable than the incredible reality. This is nature writing at its best --informative, captivating, and accessible, with a personal angle, about an endlessly fascinating and still mysterious subject. A seafood platter or a day at the beach will never be the same.
