Still able to impart valuable lessons about conservation.,
This review is from: Life and Death in a corral sea (Hardcover)This book was first published in the English language in 1971 as the second in a series of several books - each with it's own specific topic. Some of the photographs may look a little jaded - by today's standards, but because this book would have attracted a 5 star rating in 1971 I believe it should still attract that same rating today.
"Life & Death in a Coral Sea" may be something of an over-dramatic title for some. After all, this is not a book about Sharks or tragedy - but about conservation, pollution and, above all, the protection of our world's underwater environment.
Packed with page after page covering all aspects of the book's main theme, I found the book all the more interesting because of the long passage of time since I read it last. My over-riding conclusion is that the content is as relevant today as it ever was. So much so, I would suggest no scuba diver's bookshelf is complete without a copy - but be quick, they will not remain available forever.
As with all the books in this series, it is also a good read.
