The Sea's Enthrall: Memoirs of an Oceanographer
Tim ParsonsISBN: 0973164875;
Book DescriptionThe tale of one of Canada's most respected scientists, The Sea's Enthrall recounts a personal journey from a childhood passion for rock pools, to an illustrious award and an audience with the Emperor of Japan. It is a witty, often philosophical, sometimes poignant exposition on Life, as seen from the perspective of a man whose scientific training is wonderfully complemented by a curiosity for less empirical matters, such as poetry and religion. Tim Parsons is the only Canadian recipient of the Japan Prize.
