    Paperback É Tide Epub Ï tide book, Tide PDF/EPUBAldersey Williams specializes in the history of science He turns to the ocean for his latest book—no textbook he explains but “a book of stories and journeys” The Tide is incredibly wide ranging its points of reference stretch from the biblical Exodus story to Thames tides in Charles Dickens’s novels The momentum only sags a bit in a chapter on economics Through it all though Aldersey Williams is a keen learned tour guide By deeply probing the facts and metaphors of the tide he succeeds in inspiring wonder Meditative and scholarlySee my full review at Hakai magazine

    Paperback É Tide Epub Ï tide book, Tide PDF/EPUBOverall a very intriguing book that is probably best categorised in the readable and accessible science category let down by not the warmest or welcoming of authors clearly not a fan of tourist or other such non scientific folks getting in the way of his work That said some of the insights were fascinating and often times of high drama as well as high tides the dangers of Morecambe Bay are brought vividly to life for example Satisfying read although it does not want you to explore the subject any further

    Paperback É Tide Epub Ï tide book, Tide PDF/EPUBI have never understood the usual explanations and diagrams of how the tides work and it turns out that that is because the usual diagrams and explanations are much too simplified to account for the complexities that control how much tide there is at different places Yes the gravitational forces of the sun and moon are the basic culprits but so is the position of the earth in its orbit and so are the geological and geographical features of the area that the tides affect and so are the winds and weather The book does a fine job in clarifying what it can and in explaining why other issues remain complex and not as well understood A fine historical overview of how science has tried to understand tides from antiquity onward with good stories of particular places that have peculiar tidesA nicely written book that combines personal history with history of science The photographs are generally not very useful and sometimes downright mysterious about what they are suppo
