Rogue Waves: Anatomy of a Monster by Michel Olagnon

Rogue waves remain something of a mystery. Long believed to be a myth or an exaggeration, they haven't been the subject of any kind of serious in-depth research - until now. This book makes rigorous marine science accessible to all, exploring the causes and frequency of rogue waves, and the reasons why some waves become killer monsters.

With anecdotes, historical reports and objective analysis, all illustrated with evocative and rare photographs, Michel Olagnon's groundbreaking book is a definitive contribution to our understanding of this much-feared phenomenon. Amongst other questions in the book, he examines:

- How are rogue waves created?
- How do they live and die?
- Are there different types?
- Do they appear from nowhere?
- Can ships and boats cope with them?
- What lessons can be learned from past encounters?
- Will meteorologists be able to provide warnings?

Authoritative but highly readable, this is a fascinating and unique study into rogue waves, offering insights for all readers, but crucial advice for those who might encounter this dangerous phenomenon at sea.
