The Wave Catcher's Companion

Earlier this week I picked up a copy of Gavin Pretor-Pinney's new book, The Wave Catcher's Companion. Gavin is the author of The Cloud Collector's Handbook, "a whimsical guide to the wonders of the sky." Gavin is from England. He grew up in West London and now lives in Somerset. He is also the founder of The Idler, a yearly publication intended to "return dignity to the art of loafing." His latest book is a "discursive and entertaining guide to entities that control our lives in ways we rarely appreciate." I haven't read but a few pages, still trying to finish Orwell's Homage to Catalonia, but as soon as I have some time, I'll be sure to post my impressions.
