Format: Paperback
I ordered this book based on the fact that the one I wanted was out of stock ,however when it arrived it was no more than 64 pages of information and photographs that quite frankly were awful.To start with it does say that it is full of 68 of the most common coral reef fishes which i ommited to see in the description however some of the most popular coral reef fishes you are ever to find arent even in the book,Blue Surgeonfish,White tip reef shark,Rays ,Damselfish etc etc and to make things worse i ordered two by mistake if anyone needs a book on tropical reef fish as a handy pocket guide avoid this at all costs but if you want to take a chance I will gladly give you mine

This handy book is nowhere near a complete review of all the tropical coral reef fish in the world. However, it is good for beginners and light travellers, because it mentions all the important fish types without being too detailed. Furthermore the author is very knowledgeable and a good writer, so the book is very interesting reading. I recommend it.

It's what it says it is - a handy pocket guide, and a useful one. The author also has some larger more detailed works on the sublect in publication, but for the tourist/beachcomber in the area this little guide is useful.

Great Help! 12 Aug. 2009
By E. Cousins - Published on Amazon.com

PLEASE NOTE THAT MY MENTION OF THE GA AQUARIUM FACILITY DOES NOT TRANSLATE IN THE AQUARIUM ENDORSEMENT OF ANY ITEM I MIGHT REFER TO IN MY REVIEW!
I am a volunteer at the GA Aquarium and I found this book while on the look out for something quick and easy to refer to while reviewing my fish identification skills. I use this book all the time when I browse around the aquarium and or I have a quick guest question. I didn't give it 5 stars because I wished it included more species and allowed me to make it my main go to quick-guide.

My all time favorite so far is "Coral Reef Fishes: Indo-Pacific and Caribbean" by Ewald Lieske and Robert Myers.
I especially like the fact that it provides the fish silouettes by family: this helps me quite a bit as it allows me to narrow down to a family when I am confused :)
Enjoy!
Wore it out in a week! 20 April 2013

I really enjoyed this book! We went to Jamaica and snorkled for the first time ever. I bought this book thinking my 7 year old would enjoy flipping through the pics while we were on the airplane headed to Jamaica, little did I know that every time we got back from snorkling I would grab it up to understand what I saw!! I literally wore the book out in a week from reading and flipping through the pages.
Not a Bad Guide 30 Oct. 2012
By Curtis A. Parsons - Published on Amazon.com

This is a nice field guide for basic information and basic identification. I would like more scientific information on the animals covered and maybe more animals to be covered overall. But I understand this is a book that is meant to be small and easy to use for all ages and education levels. Very convenient size too.

If you're looking for a comprehensive book on coral reef fishes, this is not a book for you. For beginners, kids, as a quick reminder after a dive - this is very useful.
