The guide is small enough to travel with. Has a quick to find reference section to quickly identify the aquatic species. Easy to use.. this guide travels with me on all Caribbean trips

This book is really not worth it - I tried to be cheap and I got what I paid for. If you want a book to really luse to identify fishlife, spring for a complete, better book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good resource Sept. 27 2008

Compact, high gloss pages make the book portable and water resistant. The color photographs are mostly good. Some make it hard to know what you are looking at. The b/w drawings of fish shapes in the front is very helpful. I was able to find 90 percent of the fish and invertebrates, but the corals are pretty limited in this book. I think its a good value, just the same

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth the price Dec 30 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A decent field guide for the money, but definitely not the best out there. The photographs are lively and colorful, but not the best to use to ID wildlife. The section on corals is far from complete... I wouldn't hesitate to call it pathetic, to be honest. You can expect to identify approximately 80% of the wildlife you come across with this book. It covers all of the common species and a few uncommon ones, but you will find yourself going to other sources for some of your discoveries.

If you are looking for a basic field guide that isn't overwhelming, this is your bet. If you have some intense identifying to do, or will be identifying less common species, turn your wallet elsewhere.

After snorkeling in the Caribbean, I felt as if my granddaughter needed this book to help her identify fish, coral, sponges, and other creatures we saw.
