About this book

A Diver's Guide to Reef Life is set to become the indispensable companion for reef divers wishing to identify, photograph or learn about the myriad of fascinating creatures who inhabit the world's tropical reefs and mangroves.

The 1200 definitive and concise descriptions are drawn from the authors' first-hand experiences and are also accompanied by stunningly clear and detailed photographs, facilitating the identification of species. In addition, the authors also impart advice on how to use underwater cameras to capture beautiful images such as those presented within.

"The photos throughout the book are absolutely mesmerizing [...] The colors are so rich and the details are so amazing in these photos, that you'll wonder if this is a taxonomic guide or an underwater photography how-to [...] an absolute must-have for any diver who has eyes and plans on using them while diving [...] No marine guide in the world will excite you with this much color and fascinate you with this much information"
– Willy Volk,, October 2006

"A stunning tropical marine life reference guide which is bursting at the seams with outstanding photographs"
