The Whale - Philip Hoare

I loved much of the writing in this book. I wish I would have read Moby Dick prior though. The author brings up Moby Dick and Herman Melville throughout the entirety. But the writing about cetaceans, and our understanding of them, was extremely eloquent and enlightening. What an alien species, that is yet such a close relative. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in biology.
