Awesome April 26 2011
By D. Demoin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is great for a young scientist or avid reader who wants to read something, be entertained by the story, and learn some key concepts about science. Great for struggling readers too. This book would be great in a classroom to help students see the cause and effect relationship of humans on our world, as well as helping students see that their opinion and thoughts matter. Consumerism is also touched in this book along with graphic novel pages to summarize each chapter and help synthesize student's knowledge before moving to the next chapter.

I absolutely love this book. Great information, aesthetically pleasing pages & layouts, easy to read and understand even for my 7 year old. Everyone should read this and everyone should share this with their children. This book is fantastic!

A book for adults as much as youth! Aug. 7 2011
By Betsy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Clear, straightforward and candid history of fishing worldwide, and the current state of fish and the oceans. I was amazed at all I did not know! A great adult read.

This book changed my life Sept. 13 2012
By L. Silbert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I can't buy fish in the supermarket anymore...my eyes are open. I highly recommend this book to all adults. Kids will understand it much more quickly and easily than adults, actually, because they are not the set-in-stone consumers that we "grown-ups" have become. It is definitely a bitter pill to swallow, but if we don't each take personal responsibility for our role in the consumption cycle, and CHANGE OUR HABITS AND PURCHASES, then we will doom ourselves to the fate described in this book. Read it!!

I bought this book for my grandson, but quickly discovered I like it just as much as he does. An important issue written in a style that young children can easily understand. 5 stars! :-)
