Publisher's Summary

Hear the riveting stories of men and women battling the elements, and often each other, to stay alive, confronting savage storms, rogue waves, mountainous icebergs, sharks, starvation, and their own fear and suffering. From Sebastian Junger's The Whale Hunger to Herman Wouk's The Caine Mutiny, this program is a unique collection of the finest writing on what drives men and women to the sea, and what they face when they get there.

Not worth the time

Really found this boring. Write up makes it sound like there would be stories of "man" against the sea, but there was more of man against man. Don't bother with this one.

Whales

Very interesting story on a way of life and protection of a whale species. This story alone and its balanced approach makes this book worth reading.
