As Joel Reynolds launches a legal fight to expose and challenge the Navy program, marine biologist Ken Balcomb witnesses a mysterious mass stranding of whales near his research station in the Bahamas. Investigating this calamity, Balcomb is forced to choose between his conscience and an oath of secrecy he swore to the Navy in his youth"--

A world-renowned pediatric neurosurgeon shares the lessons of courage, compassion, and resilience that he's learned from his exceptional young patients If I Get to Five is a one-of-a-kind book by a one-of-a-kind human being. The medical world knows him as Fred Epstein, M.D., the neurosurgeon who pioneered life-saving procedures for previously inoperable tumors in children. His patients and their families know him simply as Dr. Fred, the "miracle man" who has extended them both a healing hand and an open heart. "I simply can't accept the idea of kids dying," is how Epstein explains his commitment to saving patients. As a child, he had to overcome severe learning disabilities to realize his dream of becoming a doctor. Later, as the world's leading pediatric neurosurgeon, he did whatever it took to rescue children that other doctors had given up on. Epstein credits his young patients as his most important teachers. "We tend to think of children as fragile, little people," he writes. "To me, they're giants." If I Get to Five relates the unforgettable experiences he's shared with children-lessons in courage, compassion, love, and hope-that we can all draw on to overcome adversity at any stage of life. In If I Get to Five, Epstein meditates on these lessons at a time when they parallel his own experiences, as he recovers from a near-fatal head injury. If I Get to Five is a riveting profile of courage and compassion. No one who reads this remarkable book will ever look at children-or adversity-in the same way

War of the whales : a true story by Joshua Horwitz( )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

War of the Whales tells the unlikely story of a maverick marine scientist who discovered one of the U.S. Navy's best-kept secrets: a submarine surveillance system originally designed to mimic marine mammal bio-sonar that became, ironically, an acoustic assault on an endangered species. When dozens of whales mysteriously began stranding on the shore of the small Caribbean island where Balcomb had studied marine life for years, the lone scientist challenged federal authorities with his assertion that the strandings were caused by sonar from U.S. Navy submarines. In response to the unexplained deaths of dozens of whales, one of the nation's most respected (and feared) environmental lawyers, Joel Reynolds, took action to hold the Navy accountable in a court of law. Working with Balcomb and his team from the National Resources Defense Council, the activists mounted a long battle on behalf of marine mammals against the world's most powerful Navy, which disputed the charges and held firm in its belief that its sonar submarine exercises were vital to America's national security. The battle went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Author Joshua Horwitz weaves into War of the Whales the hidden history of the Cold War competition that spurred the development of the submarine and of sonar technology. His book is written with all the ingredients of great narrative nonfiction'heroic idealists, scientific mystery, legal drama, natural history, and military intrigue
