This book promises a veritable look at the undersea world with 365 photographs captured at many exotic locations, as a diving instructor I felt it would make a good addition to my book collection, it was however, a bit of a disappointment.

I felt that many of the photographs appear darker than they ought to be. In the more temperate waters of the British Isles diving photographers have to contend with the lack of available light. However the photographs in this book are a selection captured throughout many tropical locations where the available light is far greater.

I would also point out that around 80% of the books content is attributed to macro photography and unfortunately a significant number of the subjects are clipped from the top or bottom of the pages. There is of course a big market for this type of subject matter but I felt it was too restrictive and given the exotic locations I would have preferred more wide angle photographs.

The overall quality of the book is adequate but there is room for improvement one page in particular (page 62) is too big and has not been trimmed, someone strangely came up with the idea to leave it as is and chose to simply fold the excess inward resulting in a large crease on the illustrative side?

My overall impressions of the book are that there was scope for more improvement and I would unfortunately not really recommend this book.

What a lovely book! It currently is occupying some deserved coffee table real-estate, and always gets guests picking it up and leafing through, and there are always comments about how amazing something-or-other is.

For plenty of wows and ooohs get this wonderful book of a world so alien to our own, but so accessible to many and enjoy!

Was a bit unsure whether to order this with the previous feedback. Glad I did as the photgraphs are amazing, from fish to coral. Have bought a few of these collections and very pleased with the 365 books.

Bought it as a present for a person who is into scuba diving, they are getting ideas from it which places to visit next year. And until then, they can always look at the beautiful underwater pictures.

Thoroughly enjoying turning a page each day. The photos are outstanding quality and there is an explanation of each day's photo, which are informative and interesting. Super.
