I'm not a student, just a guy who wants to learn new things. I became excited about marine biology after reading 'The Highest Tide' by Jim Lynch. Finding this introductory text took me in to a world I never knew. The descriptions and photos make the reading both enjoyable and easy to understand. I know it is a lot to take in on the first reading...but I will be reading it again and again. If this is a new interest for you...start with this book. You can't go wrong.

Delivery was a little slow but it arrived in good shape. The book itself is really interesting. I bought it for a refresher course i am taking and i will also use it for the marine biology class i will be teaching next year. It is a good book for upper division high school and lower level college classes.

I absolutely love marine biology so I was happy to have this book in my hands.
It's really informative and well structured. Great use of pictures for examples and it's really easy to read.
Would highly recommend this book for those who are into marine biology and want to learn more.

I ordered this book for a class I'm taking about a few days before the class started, shipping estimated that it would come in the second week of class. 4 days later (only 2 classes) later my doorbell rings! Not only was it fast, it is in perfect condition!

I needed this book for my marine bio class and after the class has ended I decided to keep the book since it has a lot of interesting information and beautiful pictures of sea life. This seller was quick and on time and the product was in great condition.

Was under the impression is was the ACTUAL book. It is not. Very disappointed and will not buy again. Why would I buy a book of questions based on the actual book? I don't know I would give no stars.

Over priced but seems to be cheaper here than elsewhere. Had to have it for my son's school. Would not have chosen this for a resource otherwise.

I saved myself about a 100 dollars buying the old version of this book that I needed for school. It's a lil beat up but works for me.
