Do Dolphins Ever Sleep? Summary

Do Dolphins Ever Sleep?: 211 Questions and Answers About Ships, the Sea and the Sky by Pierre-Yves Bely

Why is the sea salty? How does the wind create waves? If ice is transparent, why are icebergs white? Why are cold seas green and warm seas blue? Why don't rope strands untwist? Why does a dinghy slide backwards as you try to climb out? Why do the sun and moon sometimes have halos? Why do barnacles attach themselves to boat hulls? Do Dolphins Ever Sleep? provides the most astonishing answers to a whole range of fascinating questions you may have wondered about or may never even have thought of asking! 'This is one of those books that you open by chance and do not stop reading' Voiles et Voiliers

Do Dolphins Ever Sleep? Reviews

'This is a dangerous book that would make a great Christmas present. You think you'll dip in, but then you stay there for ages' Sailing Today (December 2007) 'More than enough material for the casual browser... mug up on the details and impress your friends, family, or whoever else tries to put you on the spot.' Lloyd's List (August 2007) 'Interesting, witty, informative and full of those questions you may have pondered on but perhaps never found the answer. An interesting book for both on board or at home.' Gaffer's Log '...one of those ideal bunkside companions you can pick up and dip into anywhere - but be warned, you may find it hard to put it down again.' Yachting Life (July 2007)The Main Sail.com (September 2007) '...this book offers clear and precise answers to some of those questions everyone is sure to have wondered about at some point.' Ship Management International (Dec 2007)
