In "The Magic of Dolphins", Dr Horace Dobbs, 'The Dolphin Man', describes some of his remarkable encounters with wild dolphins. Tracing the interaction of man with dolphins from the earliest times, he brings us up-to-date with a new chapter on the work of 'Operation Sunflower', the project through which the clinically depressed are introduced to dolphins, and the resulting profound effect on the patients. In a second new chapter, the author shares with the reader his experience of at Monkey Mia in Australia, where a family of dolphins swim into the beach each day, and have brought gifts of fish to humans. Dr Dobbs communicates his passion and enthusiasm for his subjects, with their magic quality of bringing peace and calm, allied with a strong sense of humour and fun and an ability to live at peace with their environment. He draws attention to the threats facing dolphin populations and his concern for their conservation. The book gives detailed information on sightings of dolphins around the British Isles, including Riff Bank on the Moray Firth, Solva in Wales, the Isle of Man, the River Amble in Northumberland, Porteath in Cornwall and Dingle in Co Kerry.

It is also illustrated throughout with superb colour and black and white photographs which were awarded a gold medal in 1986, at the Athens International Festival of Underwater Films and Photography.
