It's a must have book for any reef hobbyist only because it's the best of the worst. The author is certainly knowledgable and writes well. However, he's also needlessly verbose and goes on and on about things that the average hobbyist doesn't need to know or care about. The text is poorly organized making the most useful information often frustrating to find. Common names of corals are not listed in the index making it difficult for someone who only knows the common names of corals to find the proper names. The book is also quickly becoming outdated. Various 'facts' and suggestions are sadly out of step with modern knowledge and recent developments in the hobby. All in all, it's a decent book that's just well overdue for a second edition.

It just doesn't get any better than this. I would have liked it even if I didn't have an aquarium. The photos are gorgeous. The writing style is honest and direct. I get that this guy knows what he's talking about.
