by Jacques Yves Cousteau, Frederic Dumas. The Silent World is worth reading, possibly even rereading, for curiosity's sake more than anything else. Jacques Cousteau and close allies, physicist Tailliez and skin diver Dumas, famously pioneered the development of diving equipment such as the aqaulung and of diving as a whole.

Jacques-Yves Cousteau. This is probably Cousteau's best known book. In this book, Cousteau and his friend Fredric Dumas take us into the silent world under the sea. They are inventing new technologies to bear the enormous pressure down at the bed of the sea, make movies and at the same time testing out bombs and mines for the navy, Cousteau's employer. The book does drag a little bit in the middle but picks up speed again towards the end when they start wrestling sharks and hitchhiking on tortoises. Then there is the dissection of a dolphin which reveals their intelligence. I would give this book 7/10 because it is well written book and has lots of suspense and excitement. It has moments of horror, excitement and suspense in equal measure.

The Silent World: A Story of Undersea Discovery and Adventure. The book contains 48 pages of black-and-white photos by various photographers, and 16 pages of color photos

Before becoming the man who introduced us to the wonders of the sea through his beloved television series, Jacques Cousteau was better known as an engineer and the inventor of scuba. He chronicled his early days of underwater adventure in The Silent World—a memoir that was an instant, international bestseller upon its publication in 1954. Now, National Geographic presents a 50th anniversary edition of this remarkable book, allowing readers to once again travel under the sea with Cousteau during the turbulent days of World War II.

Nothing to dislike.
The original was better -- it had more pictures.

A really wonderful book and arrived in great condition! Easy read, but very entertaining and interesting!
Great photos and stories.
It's an excellent book, but I was hoping for a lot more photos of ocean life, so we will be looking for another book. Nobody knows the ocean like Jacques Cousteau, though!
watching to future
I purchased this book for a biography-lover and ocean enthusiast, and she couldn't have been more thrilled! I would definitely recommend this for the adventurous spirit in your life who loves to read.
RE-read a book from my childhood. Product as advertised.
Since I'm a diver I'm biased by Jacques , a Christopher Columbus if you will of the ocean . While this book was published early in his career.It gives you a start of his explorations and experiments of diving with Fredrick Dumas and why this man was so dedicated to the ocean.Together they were intrumental in developing many of the scuba equipment we now use today. He truely loved the ocean and wanted us to respect it.This is a book to be cherished on ones shelves.
I would offer suggestions to follow up with , "My Father the Captain" by his son Jean Michelle and & "Frogman" by Richard Hyman.Both authors give you a look into what they did while on their explorations on the Calypso , to various parts of the world.
