My husband had me researching individual fish species online for hours. I came across this book and decided to order it. It was shipped very quickly and he LOVES it. He is not a reader, but he loves this book and picks it up off the coffee table daily. We live on the Gulf coast and enjoy saltwater and freshwater fishing. Will be ordering the saltwater addition for his birthday. Great gift for a man that loves to fish... he can get his "fix" even on rainy days =).

Did not like it from a North American perspective. Lots of information on North American fish missing and some information that was totally incorrect (Largemouth Bass referred to as "Billy Bass" - the singing, animatronic, wall-mounted "fish" often received as a gag gift).
