This is such an important series to read. I was aware of the horrors of capture and captivity for cetaceans well before reading it, but that didn't stop the gut-wrenching agony of reading what Capello and "his" dolphins had to endure for the sake of profit. These books should be required reading in any ethics course - and ethics courses should be mandatory from primary school onwards. Tracy and David have done an incredible job in getting these books to press amid opposition that would conquer lesser mortals. I hope everyone who reads these books takes the message to heart and refuses to give money to any of the shameful institutions who keep cetaceans. It is also my hope that these books will help people to start thinking about captivity of any animal - and whether zoos and aquariums can really claim to be educational. The conditions involved in capture and keeping are inherently cruel and sub-standard, no matter the species.
