"Jacques Yves Cousteau" Any child of the seventies remembers vividly the first time they were enchanted with the extraordinary images under the sea from the Commandant's world . Matsen's book delves into the life of this seemingly historic figure. Coming away from the book will leave the reader with many intriguing questions. Was Cousteau's partnerships with oil companies an altruistic measure or a way of leveraging his desire for stardom? Was Cousteau primarily a cinematographer first, with an interest in the world of marine life as an after thought? Certainly, his excposure of the world's fragile marine ecosystem inspired a hoarde of Marine Biologists, Ecologists, and other professionals to at least question our relationship with the deep blue majestic. R.I.P. Jacques Cousteau!
