The narrator is perfect for this book, she really makes it comes alive. Probably the best narration I've ever heard.

First the good. Then the not quite as good but still okay.
When this book is actually discussing waves and the science, it's well written and fascinating. A truly interesting study of something we still understand little of.
When it's discussing surfers......well that's something different entirely. Laird Hamilton is a god among men and the rest of the surfers are merely lesser deities. All chiseled features and tans and muscular whatnot. Sure the scientists get similar discriptions, but it's the surfers she adores. Not as interesting as the science to me, but I'm a geek and a guy so hearing about hot bodied surf gods isn't really my cup of tea. ;-)
Even then, it's still a great book. The narration is excellent and the subject matter (even the surf stuff) is interesting. Perfect for a summer listen or a winter listen when you're wishing it was summer. Highly recommended.
