oA lot of other books tell you how to catch striped bass. This book alone explains why there are stripers in the water to begin with. This is the saga of the greatest, most hard-won fisheries mangement success story in the world. Read it, and every time your line comes tight, youAEll know who to thank. More importantly, youAEll know what else needs to be done.o --Carl Safina
