Featured Book

Joshua Horwitz, the co-founder and publisher of Living Planet Books, has written this brilliant book on the plight of the whales. He astonishes us with the breadth and depth of his coverage of why whales are dying as a result of sonar systems in the oceans, the legal battle between environmental groups and the U.S. Navy, and the pain and suffering resulting from the "unintended consequences" of keeping the United States safe. He also offers optimism by reporting on those fighting for whales through scientific and legal channels, which we hope will reinvigorate the Save the Whales movement which needs to keep its ideas and ideals before the American public.
