We include a copy of this with our textbooks when families take sailing classes with us (Emerald Coast Yachts, ECSailing.com). We love this book --great for all ages, topics are interesting, science is great, and the translation from French to English is excellent. Very readable and enjoyable. It addresses all kinds of things you might we wondering about while at anchor in a pretty spot... with dolphins, birds, and turtles swimming by, questions come up! And clouds, waves, and other interesting things to ponder. Great gift.

Have you ever had one of those moments when you think to yourself, "Huh, I wonder how that works?" or "I wonder why that is so?" Then this is the book for you. In an accessible and engaging style the author provides concise answers to question such as , "Why is the sea salty?", "how do clouds and fog form?", and "How can the GPS be so precise?" Many people avoid books related to science or more generally technical matters for fear of not understanding them or of being bored to death. This book will quell those fears. While it's technical enough to keep a scientist or engineer interested, the authors deft hand at explaining each topic makes it accessible to the average person.

I've long looked for answers to some of the questions raised and answered in Bely's book.
This book integrates the findings of various scientific disciplines and presents them
in a concise and readable form. Most of the time one reading is sufficient to get the
idea. The drawings and diagrams are relevant and easy to grasp. The piece on
"why is the sky blue" is by far the best explanation I ever had on this subject. I'm still
puzzling over why we perceive the size of the moon larger near the horizon. I guess
I'll just have to try my camera and see if the explanation fits. Would recommend this
book without reservation. Great stuff. A Juhasz

If you have ever spent extended time at sea, as a recreational sailor, navy, merchant marines, or just cruising, this book will answer all of those questions that pop into your head, and more. It is also good for shore people interested in the weather and marine biology. It is clear, concise, and very well researched with lots of new and interesting information.
lets go baby
Lots of interesting facts organized in a very readable way

211 interesting questions are answered for you. You can dazzle your friends with a unique knowledge. The book is well written. There ARE some technical explanations that are above my threshold to know, but this book is fun to read and keep around.

A wonderful compendium of all you've ever wondered about boats and the sea. Delightful reading for anyone, but especially those who love spending time on the water.
Crossing an ocean at 5 knots leaves one with ample time to ponder the surrounding world. (What's a knot? See pages 242 and 244). This book was born on such a cruise. Over the course their cruise the authors posed 211 questions "about ships, the sky, and the sea." Upon landfall, Pierre-Yves and Sally Bely sought answers.

Once in your hands, "Do Dolphins Ever Sleep?" is a challenge to put down. Thumb through the book, find an interesting question, and before you know it you've read four more questions. Each question stems naturally from the one before and leads naturally to the next, in much the same way our mind wanders from topic to topic when lost in contemplation.

The authors tackle easy (How are crews distributed on America's Cup boats?) and more challenging (How can a GPS be so precise?) questions alike, providing clear comprehensible answers. Some questions require technical answers. On these it would be easy to slip into highly technical and scientific responses, yet the Belys find ways to answer in terms understandable to most, if not everyone with a grounding in high school science.

Who should own "Do Dolphins Ever sleep?" For starters, every Yacht Club bar should have a copy alongside their Guiness Book of World Records. The rest of us should have a copy onboard to answer questions that arise while contemplating the surrounding world.

Oh, and do dolphins every sleep? Well you'll have to look on page 66.
