The content of the book is spot on for my class, but it is a bit of a difficult to read and has very few pictures. Its also insanely expensive compared to many other textbook options and I'm not sure why. Owning it cost more than both my physics and chemistry books combined and usually rentals are somewhere around the vicinity of $50/semester but this one cost twice as much! It was quite a hit to my wallet. For my class there was no other option or substitute, so I had to get this one. Like I said, the content is great and informative! Just so dang pricey, even to rent!

For someone who is EXTREMELY interested in the field of Ichthyology this is a great book. Unfortunately I felt as if the reading was pulled from a medical science text and at times I thought I was in med school. It's that in depth with the terminology. There are a lot of diagrams but drawings don't cut it when dealing with fish in general, or at least the way this book describes the physiology of fish. I'm still giving 3 stars as it does have good value and it could be used as reference material.

The book came extremely quickly and was exactly the one I ordered in the condition that was promised; the only thing that bothered me was that it reeked of cigarette smoke, and that smell affected the whole room that it was in!

This was the exact book for the class. It has good content, but is also a difficult read.
