This Book Will Float Your Boat
on 12 April 2012
I don't like reading long reviews of books, I get bored. I just like to know the salient points and not the entire plot. However, I am now torn because I would like to write a long review for this book, as it was so very detailed, complete, and if you are genuinely interested in providing the best environment for fish to live in your home, then it is a compelling read too. I will keep this short but bare with me while I set the scene.
I bought this book to read on a short flight from Dublin to London, I was planning on buying my aquarium that weekend. I had already done all the research required (so I thought). I scoffed at the author's suggestion in the first chapters that most people do not do enough responsible research.
Well the smile was wiped off my face as I read chapter after chapter of extremely well researched and clearly presented information. The author knows his fish. While lengthy, it is not boring and is fascinating in places. Every aspect of the aquarium and those who inhabit it, is explained and covered.
Even if you already have an aquarium in your home I would recommend this book. BUT if you have not yet got to that stage then this is one for the collection and well worth the money. Nice Piece of work. RECOMMENDED.
