If you love Orcas or want to know about their history with humans, you must read this book. The author digs through all kinds of primary research to give an accurate and balanced portrayal of the early days of orca-human relations. I wish he had let a professional read the book (I could only play it at 1.25x while usually I go for 1.5x when the reader is a pro). I'm more in love with and determined to save the whales than I was before reading.
What made the experience of listening to The Killer Whale Who Changed the World the most enjoyable?

Moby Doll, the first orca displayed in captivity.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Orcas and humans - first contact
Any additional comments?
Mark's reading of his own work is precise and entertaining. He tells the suspenseful narrative with panache, wit and a journalists attention to facts.
