    Hardcoverë Jacues Cousteau MOBI ↠ jacues kindle, cousteau mobile, Jacues Cousteau EpubI didn't grow up watch Cousteau's films or television series In fact my first introduction to him was via Bill Murray's character in Wes Anderson's A Life Auatic which was inspired by CousteauMatsen portrays Cousteau as a flawed explorer environmentalist and philosopher who inspired a generation to look beyond land's limits and under the water His work to focus the world's attention on the health of the oceans and the need for sustainable practices cannot be underestimated Nor can his contribution to the invention of the Aua Lung and advancing water based technologiesFar from idolising Cousteau Matsen's writing feels authentic and provides the reader with a character study that looks beyond his lengthy achievements
