Garrison, Tom :
Named Outstanding Marine Educator by the National Marine Technology Society, Tom Garrison writes market-leading textbooks that enliven students' interest in the ocean. His knowledge, combined with a gift for engaging writing, has also garnered Tom an Emmy Award for his work on the Oceanus television course and a prestigious Excellence in College Teaching Award by the Salgo-Noren Foundation. Widely used at colleges and universities throughout North America, Asia and Australia, Tom's books were born out of his desire to share his excitement with others. His oceanography texts have allowed him to reach beyond the walls of Orange Coast College and into the minds and imaginations of thousands of students. Together, teachers and students learn to see that the rise of a wave is linked to the twinkle of distant starlight, that a soft summer breeze is shaped by the chemistry of a billion microscopic plants, that the slow drift of a continent molds the evolution of countless organisms.... Studying the ocean awakens in us a sense of wonder we all felt as children when we first encountered the natural world. -- Tom Garrison
"I have always found Tom's writing style to be the best available in the introductory oceanography textbooks."
-- Dr. Karen Grove, San Francisco State University
"I really like what I've seen of this textbook. The author's preface is wonderful...I had never read it before I reviewed these chapters and discovered that it sounds very much like my first lecture...an effort to engage the students, get them excited, make them understand that a study of oceanography is truly a study of how the world works." "I think this book has found the right mix."
-- Nancy Mesner, Utah State University
"I do agree with the author's approach. I especially agree with the "active engagement" part."
-- Dr. Jay P. Muza, Broward Community College
"I do agree with the author's approach to the subject. It fits in perfectly with the way I teach my class. I firmly believe in re-instilling the sense of wonder in our natural world. I think the author does an admirable job on these particular subjects, especially in the diagrams and explanations." "The text is more than complete. It is the kind of textbook that students might like to keep, rather than reselling..."
-- Karen L. Savage, California State University, Northridge
