New York Times - By the Book

My thanks to the Don Winslow for giving How to Read Water a mention in the 'By the Book' column in the New York Times Book Review this weekend, here is the snippet:

What’s the most interesting thing you learned from a book recently?

It was from a book called “How to Read Water,” by Tristan Gooley, and it was a section that made an effort to classify breaking waves into three general “families” — “spilling,” “plunging” and “surging” — and then gave their determining characteristics. I have occasion to study waves quite a bit, so it was fascinating. Reading water is something of a survival issue, so I can never learn enough.
