by Dava Sobel

A story told well. That it's true, and had a huge effect on mariners adds all the more to this "gem of a book" as the NY Times praised it.

Telling time and its relation to travel/navigation on the seas meant the difference between life and death. And now Walker & Company has brought back this book which it first published in 1995, in an affordable softcover (yet it still has a color signature) edition.

If you missed the book the first time out, you can make-up for it now. You won't be disappointed.
