"[A] captivating hybrid--an intro to the mind-melting physics of waves and a ride-along with the scientists and surfers who chase after them...Fascinating."—Men's Journal

"[A] breath-snatching thrill ride"—Elle

"Something is stewing in our seas, and Susan Casey—traveling, and in some cases swimming, all around the world—is eager to find out what it is. Both a rollicking look at the ocean's growing freakishness and a troubling examination of our ailing planet, The Wave gives new meaning to the term 'immersion reporting.'"Hampton Sides, author of Hellhound on His Trail, Blood and Thunder, and Ghost Soldiers

"At once scary and fun, The Wave surprises at every turn."—Elizabeth Kolbert, author of Field Notes from a Catastrophe
