NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
"Part science, part memoir, part impassioned plea for change, [Voices in the Ocean] fascinates." People
"Painstakingly researched and gorgeously written. . . . Casey
transports us through the many truths and myths about dolphins."
"Casey skillfully weaves global adventure travelogues, first-person reportage and deep archival research. She exhibits a flair for peppering her tales with complex scientific concepts but keeps them accessible for consumption by a broader audience without losing the narrative arc or momentum." --The Miami Herald "A meticulously reported global odyssey. . . . [Casey] has an inexhaustible curiosity and a knack for fully embracing her subject." --Outside Magazine "A reminder of the unique and complicated bond humans feel with these animals. . . . Casey's moving writing left me with some hope for a better future for dolphins and humans."
--Mary Bates, Slate "What starts out as a feel-good, new-agey account darkens like the sunlight diminishing in the deep, subtly turning into a devastating chronicle of one of the most egregious mismatches in natural-human history. The result is a brilliantly written and passionate book. . . . timely and urgent."
--The Guardian (London) "A passionate and richly readable account of dolphins--their world, their behaviors, and the humans whose lives revolve around studying them. . . . Fascinating and cautiously joyous . . . a book any lover of nature should read."
--Open Letters Monthly "[A] blend of mystic wonder with scientific awe and downright dangerous environmental confrontations."
--InStyle "[Casey] embarks an investigation into the world of dolphins, impressing the reader with her curiosity and thrilling sense of discovery as she travels the world to learn about these unique creatures."
