This book is much more than I needed and does not really fit the bill for me. I felt like a 4yr old with a copy of War and Peace... Just in over my head! My bad. I should have known from the description but am posting here to help others who may make the same mistake.
But for what this book actually is seems extremely comprehensive. I will likely replace this with a "Freshwater fish for dummies" type book and when I'm a bit more knowledgeable in a few seasons I'll likely return to this one and better appreciate it then.
this book would be similar in format to other ones I have (on trees, birds, etc), which feature an abundance of large detailed
color pictures throughout. Unfortunately, this one consists mostly of small generic illustrations and low resolution black and white photographs, although there are a few very nice color plates in the back of it. That said, I think this book would be very useful to people who want to learn about fish. It contains a lot of information and is of good quality. If you're an artist looking to buy this for the same reason I did, however, you'll probably want to keep looking.
