The ocean is Susan Casey’s obsession – and she has submersed herself in extensive research and extreme adventure to write about great white sharks, dolphins, 100-foot waves, and now, the underworld’s unfathomable mysteries. The deep ocean comprises 95 percent of the earth’s biosphere and yet we know almost nothing about this unseen realm. Journey with her as she takes us through the history of exploration, from ancient legends to today’s scientists who are just beginning to understand the complexities and ecological importance of the quadrillions of creatures that exist in depths long thought to be devoid of life. Discover, as she did, how vital the deep is to the future of the planet and how urgent it is that we understand it in a time of increasing threats from climate change, industrial fishing, pollution, and mining companies.
