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.
