There is often considerable confusion whenever White Star publishing of Italy produce yet another book about the sea which is aimed primarily at scuba divers. Firstly, each book gets treated to a particular brand of Italian English which is hard to understand and makes reading the item very difficult indeed. Secondly, they appear to use a small number of truly excellent underwater photographers who are then incapable of delivering the standard of product which the modern scuba diver "demands." Finally, the qualifications of those underwater photographers when it comes to describing that flora and fauna is, at the very least, suspect. For example, any author of a book on, say, Sharks who had a PhD in marine biology would mention that qualification somewhere within the book. Mr Mojetta appears to have no such qualifications. In short, factual errors do not seem to matter to these publishers.
Mojetta has previously produced books about the flora and fauna of the Mediterranean Sea which is full of mistakes. He has also produced a book called "The Barrier Reefs" which later became "The Coral Reefs" - both being largely the same product. Now we have yet another tome which seeks to explain the flora and fauna of the Red Sea - which was also covered in previous books. In some instances this book is called "Red Sea and Complete Coral Reef Guide" in another it is called "The Red Sea - Underwater Paradise" and in yet another it is simply called "Underwater Paradise" and yet all are the same book.
My biggest problem with Angelo Mojetta, however, are his qualifications, ability and experience for writing a book of this type. In short, they do not appear to exist. Alongside those many errors in his previous works we have several instances where the same picture of a fish is described as being one species in one book and something very different in another.
There is far more to writing books about the flora and fauna of our seas than simply taking a photograph and looking that species up in a book written by somebody else! Sadly, Mojetta's inaccuracies will be accepted as being factually correct by some divers who will then put the wrong name into their logbook.
In summary, this is "not" a trustworthy guide, it is a book that serious marine biologists will laugh at. It is, however, packed with outstanding photography - photography which should not be allowed to fool the reader into believing the written content is anything more than the ramblings of an amateur with a camera.
