The pictures in this book are excellent,although the print quality on some of the pages was lacking. The World of Catfishes is the best book I have read for identifying catfish but was completely lacking in species specific information.This was disappointing especially as it is quite an expensive book,I was hoping for a definitive guide to keeping catfish.There was no information on size diet or water quality for any of the individual species. I would recommend this book for identification purposes only but it is of little use to the novice aquarist.
Found the supplier of this book to be outstanding as original was posted and to this day did not receive it when contacted supplier another book was sent forth with which I did receive and of excellent quality and very good read.
Cannot thank supplier enough for there excellent communication and fast actions many thanks.
