Aquaman surfaces

The Aquaman Shrine, had this to say about The Sea King:

I haven’t even finished reading Brad Matsen’s Jacques Cousteau: The Sea King yet, but I can already recommend it to anyone with an interest in the world-famous explorer of the seas. Cousteau’s commitment to caring for the world’s oceans and all the life in them made him a real-life Aquaman.

A regular observation he made throughout his life was how little of the planet’s vast oceans we have explored; which reminds me a lot of Aquaman’s famous line from Kingdom Come about him ruling 70% of the world. After all, they are both known as The Sea King!

Its a highly addictive read, in that author Matsen lays out Cousteau’s incredible life story in such vivid detail that I found myself going way past my “chapter a night” bedtime ritual and reading as much as I could before falling asleep. An amazing life, an excellent read.
