5.0 out of 5 stars Simply the best marine life guide around, Sept. 30 2008
This review is from: A Diver's Guide to Reef Life (Hardcover)
If I had to choose just one dive field guide among the many available today I'd have no hesitation in picking this one. 1.200 tropical marine species worldwide from the Red Sea to the Indo-Pacific and the Caribbean, 1.300 absolutely spectacular color photographs, generally pleasant and highly informative texts, a handful of easily accessible in-depth essays on fish behaviour (such as "Camouflage", "Symbiosis" or "Group Strategies"), several simply wonderful and imaginative color photogalleries clearly aimed at improving the reader's U/W camera skills (look at those amazing Scorpionfish or Frogfish faces!) - all packed up in 480 photo-packed glossy pages, covering all sorts of stuff from big sharks to wildly colorful reef fishes and from tiny shrimps to dolphins and whales. Fairly small size makes the book quite handy for field use on beaches or dive boats, and the robust hardcover with reinforced stitching will allow it to survive years of abuse - what else can a diver, an avid U/W shutterbug or a snorkeller bound for tropical seas ask from life? Highly recommended to all, seasoned old crocs and starters alike - it's from the same authors of two other very successful volumes, A DIVER'S GUIDE TO THE ART OF UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY and A DIVER'S GUIDE TO UNDERWATER MALAYSIA MACROLIFE. The authors, Andrea and Antonella Ferrari, have been awarded the World Grand Prize at the International Festival of the Underwater Image in Antibes, France, for the scope, depth and scientific value of their books.
