Excellent story, a real eye opener
Where does War of the Whales rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
This is the most informative audio book I've ever listened to. While it's a great dramatic story and and an interesting read, it also provides a wealth of information about whales, how they are being endangered by both commercial and military underwater sonar technologies, and the dedicated whale researchers and environmental activists that are working hard to save them. It is both fascinating and heart-breaking.
What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Holter's style brings to life all the drama, mystery,sadness and wonderment that this story contains.
What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?
That whales are being endangered and killed by human-produced sonar systems, that this has been going on for several decades, and how the Navy and even the Supreme Court has turned a blind eye to their plight.
Any additional comments?
While this book is a true story and very informative, it's a great page-turner and reads more like a dramatic fiction.

The details are important
There is always a trade-off when we add technology to the solution. Rarely is it all good. This book discusses the trade-off of using sonar technology for naval defense and the damage it causes whales. It discusses the cost to the eco-system when we focus solely on the technical solution. It is a good listen, can get somewhat dry in parts, but then you will be going back for the details. "Audible 20 Review Sweepstakes entry"
