This book gives an excellent overview of what is involved in their care, and the pond/pool they are in. The three areas I like the best are plants that are beneficial, identification of assorted health issues, and care of the pond.
Many other people will prefer the photographs, of which there are a large number of nicely printed color shots. And while this is interesting, I look at the fish as art. I may not know what they are, ie an Ogun, or a (insert name here), but if they look pretty to me I will like them.
I may never remember the names, but I am not breeding them to sell, so I will be giving them my own names anyhow. If the little buggers reproduce I can open this book, look up photos, and tell someone they can have 1000 of whatever type shows up.
Plus the price is reasonable, compared to a lot of the "better" books. But you don't want to have me go into my theories on pricing...
While too much detail is usually the problem, there are also many parts when there are not enough facts to actually understand what thi book is trying to say.
It's an OK beginners guide, but some parts can be tedious and confusiong.
