4 STAR DOODY'S REVIEW!
"This is an enormous book. It weighs in at just under eight and a half pounds with a list price that makes it comparable to an equal quantity of sushi grade tuna! It is a beautiful and powerful text/reference book. The composition corresponds particularly well with the subject. The wealth of detail, the high quality photos and drawings, the well composed text, and the engaging layout are enticing. Handling and reading such an exceptional book brings great pleasure. Forget the fish. Buy the book."--Doody's Review Service
