    1 thought on “Captain Paul Watson: Interview with a Pirate

    1. I appreciate all that Sea Shepherd and Paul Watson have accomplished and this book covers these deeds rather well. While there are far too many issues impacting the world's species on land and at sea to cover thoroughly, there was a good range of coverage by Watson and the interviewer. While I agree with the sentiments expressed in the book I feel as though it is likely more of a "preaching to the choir" sort of book rather than one that will appeal to a broad audience. I would love to think it [...]

    2. Inspiring, eye-opening and potentially life changing, this was a great read! I have changed my eating habits as a result of reading the Captains story and I honestly feel better about the world because of this man and his work. Despite all the terrible things happening to the very life support systems of our planet, the fact that there are people with such passion for the truth and who have the guts to do whatever is required to protect wildlife- I feel hopeful that all is not lost. I can make a [...]

    3. I HIGHLY recommend this read for environmentally aware and the curious alike. In the words of Lamya Essemlali, "Paul [Watson] didn't inspire me to make my commitment to nature, but he certainly provided another dimension for my commitment."After years of frustration with groups like Greenpeace, I can really understand and connect with Paul. Paul has literally lived the live of an ecologist without the 'burnout' of just trying to be an activist, focusing his battles protecting marine life and doi [...]

    4. If only people had the desire to open their eyes and truly see what's happening to our oceans and to our planet, this guy would not be exiled in the middle of the oceans because the mafias of half the world want to get rid of him and of all the good he is doing.A must read.

    5. It's time for the truth. Captain Paul Watson explains why whaling is despicable, why we must save the oceans, and why he fights for marine life. This is a must read.

    6. Quand j'étais petite, j'adorais Long John Silver dans l'Île au trésor, et je pense que c'est un peu grâce à ces mythes enfantins, aux histoires de vieux loups de mer, que tant de personnes aiment Paul Watson. Watson, c'est un mélange entre un pirate de Stevenson, ton grand-père qui te fait des confitures et des grands discours, et la dernière star de télé réalité. Et chez moi, franchement, ça marche, j'adhère : une telle dévotion, et un tel charisme aussi (il faut le dire), au ser [...]

    7. Watson was one of the founders of Greenpeace but left because of a difference in opinion on how to combat pouching and environmental crimes by large corporations who are essentially above the law and out of control of any government. His more aggressive approach has meant that he must stay at sea or be arrested as he is wanted in most countries for his protests which have cost many corporations millions of dollars in damaged equipment and loss of profits. Watson has paid for his dedication to sa [...]

    8. I knew who Cpt. Paul Watson was. I had seen the CNN interviews when he charged the Sierra. I have seen him on the news relative to court appearances and interviews opposite Greenpeace since, but I have to say I had never looked at him personally.Essemlali has compiled an interview style conversation comprised of personal questions, questions of moral philosophy and practical timekeeping/historical sequence questions which trace Watson's career. The writing is simple and clean and like him or not [...]

    9. If You're Interested in a Healthy Planet. this is a must read.Paul Watson is a passionate, compassionate and courageous soul. He also is very articulate. I totally agree with almost every thing he says. I have thought for a very long time that we are eating our oceans to death. He does an outstanding job of articulating my fears. And yet, somehow he remains optimistic and focused.I was afraid this book would be dry and depressing, but it is not. On the contrary, it is inspirational.

    10. I wish everyone would read this. Paul Watson doesn't pull any punches, telling it like it is and speaking his mind with no concern for political correctness or what anyone else thinks. And he does this in such a reasoned, knowledgeable and eloquent way that it will impress even those skeptical of his message. He presents a dire portrait of the state of our world, but in the end, his passion is infectious, his humility impressive and his example is inspiring.

    11. I love the interview style of writing in this book. I also admire the Captain and appreciate his honesty. This book would be an excellent eye-opener for people who are unaware of the war against nature, the oceans in particular.

    12. Would definitely recommend!! only downfall is the repetitiveness after awhile which could have just been edited out. eye opening!!

    13. It is written in an interview style, which is quite annoying, and is obviously quite passionately ecologically focused, but it's an engaging and thought provoking read.
