“To understand the ocean”, writes James Bradley in The Penguin Book of the Ocean, is “to understand ourselves”.

The acclaimed author of Clade and Ghost Species sinks beneath the waves once more in his latest non-fiction book, blending science, history and personal reflection to explore our natural world’s fathomless recesses.

Praised by Tim Winton as a “beautiful, lucid hymn to the sea”, Deep Water: The World in the Ocean is a reckoning with the environmental catastrophe overtaking us.

Dive into the most unknown place on earth with James, joined by journalist Helen Sullivan.
