Oh, by the way, did you catch that item in Sunday’s New York Times Book Review? You know, the review of the brand-new book by Bernal Heights author (and anticool motorist) James Nestor?
Neighbor James’s book is called Deep: Freediving, Renegade Science, and What the Ocean Tells Us About Ourselves, and here’s a taste of what the NYT had to say about it:
