Excellent and comprehensive guide to the fish of the Caribbean! Follows on from the larger edition by Humann and Deloach but is just a more compact size! Certainly reduced the weight of my hand-luggage when I went on a marine expedition for 4 weeks, of which this was listed as an essential item! The waterproof cover also makes it a great guide to bring on the boats without the worry of damaging it.
The pictures are clear and features are listed about each fish, allowing you to distinguish between more similar species. There wasn't one fish I saw whilst diving that wasn't in this book!
An essential for any budding marine biologist or diver with an interest in identification! Suitable for the beginner or advanced.
An excellent and comprehensive guide to Caribbean reef fish. Photos are fantastic and there is not a single fish I could not find in this book. The only improvement I could suggest would be to make the book a little hardier and perhaps with water proof pages. I found looking after such lovely book on a wet sailing boat a bit of a challenge. Otherwise- top quality!
Definitely not worthwhile. I had the original version and wanted this as a purchase for a friend. The quality was dreadful (worse than an old photocopier!). The upside was that Amazon were quick and efficient on return/refund. Stick to the original book -it's excellent.
