New book announcement: marine mammals autobiography

Fifty Years of Flukes and Flippers;  a little history and personal adventures with dolphins, whales and sea lions (1958-2007) is an authobiography by William E. Evans.  I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Evans from 1989 through 1999 in his tenure here at Texas A&M University at Galveston.  This might be the icing on the cake of Dr. Evan’s illustrious career working with marine mammals, but you should see that in his own words as he recounts how he came from Elkhart, Indiana to a career with marine mammals that has taken him all over the world.  Along the way he helped to develop the Navy’s marine mammal programs, and was U.S. Undersecretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmospheres (head of NOAA).  His book is published by Pensoft, distributed in the U.S. by Coronet Books.
