Philosophy… it’s the Dolphin Way

Fictional work imagines life through the eyes of a dolphin

A book published this summer will make you re-think the way you look at dolphins.

‘Dolphin Way’ is the debut novel by Mark Caney, a familiar name to many as the vice president of PADI here in the UK.

It’s generally accepted that dolphins are intelligent creatures, but in ‘Dolphin Way – Rise of the Guardians’ (to use its full title) they’re on a whole other level.

Caney’s book imagines a world where dolphins have developed their own belief system, culture and life in harmony with the ocean – their planet Earth.

However, this underwater utopia begins to change and one of the dolphins is forced to try to save the day.

There is a strong environmental theme, as you’d expect of a book dedicated to cetaceous creatures that enchant all who encounter them.

Author Mark Caney has over the years had many encounters with dolphins and has had several opportunities to study them in detail. He is a marine mammal medic and is an active member of the board of the marine environmental charity, Project AWARE.

‘Dolphin Way – Rise of the Guardians’ is published by AquaPress costing 12.99, and available from Amazon or the Dolphin Way website.
