The oceans are the single most important feature of our planet. They shape our climate, our culture, our future. Yet we know more about the surface of Mars than we do about Earth's watery depths. What lies below the frozen Arctic ice-sheets? Or in the intriguing black holes under the Caribbean Sea? Drawing on the most exciting stories from the fields of sub-aquatic archaeology, geology, marine biology and anthropology, professional diver and explorer Paul Rose reveals an astonishing hidden world of lost cities, forgotten shipwrecks, underwater caves and submerged volcanoes. He also looks at life in the ocean habitat, from great white sharks to the myriad exotic, but rarely seen, creatures that thrive in the extreme conditions miles beneath the surface.This book, like the landmark television series it accompanies, examines the possible consequences of upsetting this delicate balance and its impact on global warming. Beautifully illustrated with more than 150 colour photographs, "Oceans: Exploring the Hidden Depths of the Underwater World" unravels the mysteries of the deep and provides illuminating insights into this vast undersea domain. The oceans and seas explored include the Mediterranean, the Sea of Cortez, the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea, the Southern Ocean and the Arctic Ocean.

Hi I've had a reply like this before and been nicely surprised when I've received one a few day later saying in stock again..

I've just received an email from whsmiths. Anyone get a similar one?

24p quidco tracked though.
I tried to order one and got the order cancellation (out of stock) email. Its very frustrating cause i know they have one in our local shop.

I can understand that the web price is cheaper, that makes sense but what frustrates me is, if you go to WHsmith website you assume they are the same company as the local shops and could send items between eachother, they can send the other direction. But the lady on the helpline told me that "gardeners" run there website and they cant send the book from the shop to them.

It's frustrating as alot of these hotdeals are out of stock and i wonder if they do it to get us to there site.

I know i should get a life.
