  • "'A rich and absorbing blend of autobiography, science and adventure'"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "'a wonderfully readable memoir, full of amazing facts and funny stories, but ultimately an elegy for a fast-disappearing world'"

    Daily Mail
  • "'Norton relates his struggles and fascination with genuine warnth and humour'"

    Irish News
  • "Lovers of the sea and sands will be swept away by Under Water to Get Out of the Rain in which distinguished marine biologist Trevor Norton writes so lyrically that you can taste the salt of his bonding with the oceans, from the submarine lava tunnels of Lanzarote, to the kelp forests of California and the pure silver strands of the Hebrides"

    Sunday Times
  • "'Trevor Norton's beautifully written memoir of a life spent probing and pondering the sea depths derives much of its power from his observations ashore. . . . What he saw is described with a novelist's sensibility and eye for detail. . . . And his literate, witty, luminous prose makes this a marine biology to cuddle up to. This is a book to take to the seaside and to bed.'"
