Whales are the largest mammals in the world, and in some cases are larger that the largest dinosaurs of the past. Whales are also poorly known and understood, as Pyenson suggests in the title. Most whale knowledge comes from the brief time spent at or near the surface, but Pyenson tries his best to highlight the latest research, as well as an historical overview on our relationship to whales.Captivating, yet solemn reading (specifically when it comes to human whale interaction). For the dedicated reader, you can see some of the 3D replications of entire whales found in Chile: https://3d.si.edu/explorer?modelid=386#downloads Science writing at its best.
