Jacques Cousteau's Calypso Reviews
I just purchased a used library copy of Jacques-Yves Cousteau's
What is not to like about Jacques Cousteau? Cooler than John Wayne
This is an enjoyable popular account of the history of Cousteau and his famous exploration vessel Calypso. Chock full of color pictures from all over the world it is an arm chair adventurer's dream reference. Scale ship modelers can see many details of the Calypso and her configuration as it changed through the years of its voyages. Those interested in oceanography and marine exploration will not be disappointed with the many abundant details of her numerous adventures in distant locales. All-in-all a wonderful addition to anyone's home library!
I have owned a 20 volume boxed set of the original “The Ocean World of Jacques Cousteau” for almost 40 years but was wholly unaware of an additional volume added at some later date. That extra book was all about Calypso, the boat which, through the films and books of the late, great Jacques Cousteau, became one of the most famous in the world and finally became a separate book in its own right.
If you are a Jacques Cousteau fan, this book is a must. It has several gate-fold diagrams of the ship as well as the story of the Calypso and it's crew. I am glad that I invested in this.
