As science advances at breakneck speed, it becomes harder to make new discoveries and chart uncharted territory. Yet The Deep Pull: A Major Advance in the Science of Ocean Tides does just that. This book offers the world a new model of tide formation that can actually find a pattern in previously unintelligible tide data and be applied to both oceanic and atmospheric tides. At the heart of this new model is a new theory on where lunisolar gravitational forces act. With this simple key, the author opens a new way of understanding a centuries-old science.

Written for anyone with an interest in the mechanics behind natural phenomena, Walter Hayduk takes the readers through his thought process behind his new discovery. His accessible and engaging, step-by-step manner of uncovering a new paradigm through the exploration of data, analogies, and natural phenomena – from the Bay of Fundy’s incredible tides to tornadoes – provides the reader with the excitement of his or her own eureka moment of understanding the secret of the tides.

About the author

Walter Hayduk is a chemical engineer and retired university professor who likes to understand how things work and fix them when needed – whether it’s a leaky faucet or a scientific model. He notes, “All my life I have been interested in natural phenomena, including the climate. I have a knack of attacking problems head-on with imaginative ideas, persistence and hard work.” Thus, armed with a globe of the world, almanacs, many diagrams, the Internet, and a lifetime of accumulated information, Walter began his journey to truly understand tide formation, and in particular, the previously unexplained progression of tide times. After more than a year of study, he came up with a paradigm-shifting explanation that just may change how we view the natural world.

Today Walter and his wife, Bev, live in Ottawa, where they enjoy frequenting local coffee shops and appreciating music. Walter is also the author of Crash Course: 157 Causes of Collisions and How to Prevent Them.

From Graham Hancock, bestselling author of Fingerprints of the Gods, comes a mesmerizing book that takes us on a captivating underwater voyage to find the ruins of a lost civilization that’s been hidden for thousands of years beneath the world’s oceans.

While Graham Hancock is no stranger to stirring up heated controversy among scientific experts, his books and television documentaries have intrigued millions of people around the world and influenced many to rethink their views about the origins of human civilization. Now he returns with an explosive new work of archaeological detection. In Underworld, Hancock continues his remarkable quest underwater, where, according to almost a thousand ancient myths from every part of the globe, the ruins of a lost civilization, obliterated in a universal flood, are to be found.

Guided by cutting-edge science and the latest archaeological scholarship, Hancock begins his mission to discover the truth about these myths and examines the mystery at the end of the last Ice Age. As the glaciers melted between 17,000 and 7,000 years ago, sea levels rose and more than 15 million square miles of habitable land were submerged underwater, resulting in a radical change to the Earth’s shape and the conditions in which people could live. Using the latest computer techniques to map the world’s changing coastlines, Hancock finds astonishing correspondences with the ancient flood myths.

Filled with thrilling accounts of his own participation in dives off the coast of Japan, as well as in the Mediterranean, the Atlantic, and the Arabian Sea, we watch as Hancock discovers underwater ruins exactly where the myths say they should be—sunken kingdoms that archaeologists never thought existed. Fans of Hancock’s previous adventures will find themselves immersed in Underworld, a provocative book that provides both compelling hard evidence for a fascinating, forgotten episode in human history and a completely new explanation for the origins of civilization as we know it.
