    I have enjoyed your explanations.
    How in the heck do you know all of this?  Has your professional work
    caused you to need to learn all of this, or are you a physicist that
    loves to study this?  I have always wanted to learn more about the tides
    but have never found the appropriate book.  All seem either too
    or way over my head.  (I'm a math major with a decent amount of physics
    under my belt.)
    Do you have any recommendations for further reading for someone with my
    level of understanding?
