From the reviews:
"This book is sure to appeal to those interested in rogue waves from a variety of disciplines. The authors have provided a thorough overview of observations of rogue waves, ranging from frightening experiences at sea to laboratory experiments. Those interested in the physics of nonlinear water waves will also find a nice overview of the topic as it relates to the generation of deep and shallow-water rogue waves. Overall, this book should satisfy any scientist's or student's curiosity of this interesting phenomenon." (Eric L. Geist, Pure and Applied Geophysics, Vol. 168, 2011)
"The book, designed for Master's and Ph.D. students, as well as researchers and engineers in the fields of nonlinear waves, fluid mechanics, physical oceanography, ocean and coastal engineering, and applied mathematics, is structured in six chapters. ... Rogue waves in the ocean, which well describes the state of the art in the field, also provides a very useful compendium of knowledge, mathematical tools, and interpretative approaches for rogue waves and similar steep oceanic water waves."
