An Ocean of Air: Why the Wind Blows and Other Mysteries of the Atmosphere An Ocean of Air: Why the Wind Blows and Other Mysteries of the Atmosphere

by Gabrielle Walker

Book Reviews

"Who knew air could be so interesting? Like the scientific mavericks she profiles, Gabrielle Walker had the freshness of vision to realize that within its presumed nothingness lay the most fascinating, profound revelations about life on earth. This is science writing at its best: clear, witty, relevant, unbelievably interesting, and just plain great."
--Mary Roach, author of Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

"This subject is hot, the science is cool, and Gabrielle Walker's style is lighter than air. Warmly recommended."
--Jonathan Weiner, author of The Beak of the Finch

"[Walker provides] counter-intuitive delights . . . This is a fabulous introduction to the world above our heads."
--Mail on Sunday (London)

"Extraordinary . . . The scientists are almost as interesting as their science."
--Simon Singh, The Daily Telegraph (London)
