Book: How to Speak Whale

A nice little pop-science read, which looks at whale behaviour, language, and efforts being made to bridge human languages and theirs. Author Tom Mustill had an odd road to writing this book. In 2015, while kayaking, a breaching humpback whale jumped on top of him while he was kayaking, leaving him shaken but unhurt. The event was captured on video, went viral, and in a sense helped launch an interest in whales that resulted in the writing of this book.
