Both informative and accessible, this is a wide ranging book covering many aspects of tides including the author’s own interests and observations. He covers how tides are addressed in art and literature and the role they have played in history, from warfare to migration. He also covers the historic progress of measuring and attempting to explain and predict the tide.
