Product description


'Page after page is patient, open, rational and clear.... an eye opening experience' * Daily Mail * 'Pretor-Pinney is clever, passionate, indomitable in his determination to share his knowledge.' * Daily Telegraph * `He is an entertaining and informal teacher... a unique book' * Daily Mail * 'Dotted with photos and diagrams, The Wavewatcher's Companion is a perfectly paced combination of whimsical, digressive wonder and in-depth knowledge that renders a potentially esoteric subject engaging to all' * Financial Times *

a magazine that defends the noble art of doing nothing. Gavin loves
watching waves in every form, whether on the seashore or around a
football stadium, and has learned to enjoy their subtle and beautiful
progress through our lives. He lives in Somerset.
