About this book
Subtitled, "How One Man's Obsession With Runaway Sneakers & Rubber Ducks Revolutionized Ocean Science".
Tells the story of the author's lifelong struggle to solve the sea's mysteries, and shares his most surprising discoveries. It recounts how flotsam has changed the course of history-leading Viking mariners to safe harbours, Columbus to the New World, and Japan to open up to the West - and how it may even have made the origin of life possible.
