With early memories of women selling peppers in the streets of Ceylon, where the author lived as a child, the southern English town of Bude during WWII, where he grew up, and emigration to Canada, where his formal education as an ocean scientist would take place, The Sea's Enthrall is more than a tale of an oceanographer.?It is a witty, at times philosophical, sometimes even poignant exposition on Life, as seen from the perspective of a man whose scientific training is wonderfully complemented by a curiosity for less empirical matters, such as poetry and religion.Oceanographers in training can learn from Dr. Parson's many insights into topical research; retired professors in the sciences will find many parallels in thought and experience; those who enjoy anecdotal storytelling, or travelogues, or simply appreciate learning about fascinating people who have managed to make a mark in the world - all these will enjoy The Sea's Enthrall.(The title is a direct quotation from Edward Spenser's "The Faerie Queene," Book II, Canto XII, Verse 25.)Publication Date: Feb 29, 2004"Timothy Parsons is an unknown national treasure--possibly because he's always dared to say what nobody wants to hear. But if you love our ocean planet, you'll need to read this book." - Paul Kennedy, Host/Producer of IDEAS, (CBC Radio One)"I knew Tim Parsons well as a fellow student during his time at Christ's Hospital and have met him in Canada on numerous occasions since then. I have always thought of him as an independent thinker who likes to challenge conventional views, whatever the subject. He is a scientist who appears to have discovered there is a poetry to life which illuminates his thinking. I look forward to hismemoirs, they will make great reading." - Brigadier General Ron Bell (rtd)?Also in paperback (ISBN 0-9731648-7-5) US$19.95
