Bought this as a gift for my young neices, and my brother in law (who is an avid scuba diver) was probably more impressed. Crisp, rich photography in astonishingly artistic layouts. No information on the pages, but there is a reference section in the back with thumbprints of the pictures and full details on each sea creature.

This is one of those books that is full of glorious photographs that often challenge the imagination. There is so little that we actually know about what lives in the sea, so close to us, but so far away in our knowledge and understanding.

I was disappointed. I don't enjoy looking at sea creatures photographed in a tank in the dark. I guess part of their beauty is in their natural habitat. The front cover was the best photograph which is why I purchased the book. Seeing all the other pictures made me sad. The book's concept did not live up to my expectations of art or natural history so I sent it back.

Beautiful book of many different sea life. The images pop out of the black background. He uses some unusual framing showing different parts of dishes etc. I also like the index in the back that tells you about the various sea life. I wish he talks about how he took the photos

I'd like see more text detailing how the photos were taken, and maybe a little info about each species. The print quality is great, and the subject matter endlessly fascinating.

Two of my grandchildren began their young lives in Chicago within walking distance of the Shedd Aquarium. It was there they became fascinated with sea creatures. They are lucky to have this experience. SEA gives one almost the same experience without being there in person. The photography makes you feel like you are in front of the tank. It is a beautiful book. One that will be looked at over and over.

I have a 180 gallon saltwater aquarium that is wrasse dominant and one of my favorites is my Richmond's wrasse. I found out about this book because I found Mark's photo of a Richmond's online and did some research to find out where the photo came from. The photography in this book is absolutely stunning! It's in our living room and everyone who has visited and taken a look at the book has been blown away.
