I have enjoyed working with Dr. Milton Love for over 40 years. Through his participation in our education programs thousands of students and educators better understand the role of fishes in our coastal ecosystems. Milton Love has created a fascinating new book: Certainly More Than You Want To Know About The Fishes Of The Pacific Coast. It has thorough descriptions of our Pacific Coast fishes, hilarious stories, and elegant photos. When one thinks of wit and wisdom, the names Benjamin Franklin and Winston Churchill may come to mind. But these intellectual heavyweights with a sense of humor have a contemporary peer, at least in the domain of fishes, and it is Dr. Milton Love. Milton has his own unique twist on just about everything, but in the world of fishes his style of communication and depth of knowledge are without peer. I highly recommend Dr. Love's new book and suggest it even if you are not a fish hugger. --Jean-Michel Cousteau, Ocean Futures Society
About the Author
Milton Love is a moderately well respected marine biologist at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Ensconced within this ivory tower, well behind the barbican, but still perhaps uncomfortably close to the garderobe, and well away from the sordid little affairs of the Common Folk, Dr. Love conducts research on the fishes of the Pacific Coat. Possessed of an ego that is the size of the lower slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro and the color of that young girl's hair in Rembrandt's The Night Watch, but curiously smells of new-mown hay, this is not a man to cross.
