What People are Saying About This

Jean-Michel Cousteau

Here is a scientist, like very few, who you can understand, who dazzles his audience with the fascinating world of the coral reef. His message is conveyed eloquently with words and images.
— President, Ocean Futures Society

George Plimpton

This book is so brilliantly beautiful and informative. One only wishes for scuba gear to become part of Dr. Murphy's coral reefs.

Parry, Zale

With his magnificent narrative and never-before seen underwater photography, Dr. Richard Murphy conveys his exhilaration and excitement of science, the challenge of adventure and the search for preservation of the coral reefs.... In this book, he offers thought provoking, wise, and amusing comparisons of life in coral reefs to life in London, New York, or any other city you might know. Coral Reefs is a gift to all generations who love nature and wish to preserve its beauty.
— Ambassador of the Academy of Underwater Arts and Sciences

Robert N. Ginsburg

How pleased I am to see this marvelous work.... You have produced a most unusual hybrid--part reef text-book, part entertainment, educational, and awe-inspiring.... I can only hope that this volume receives the praise it deserves and that it will be in libraries worldwide to dazzle, inspire, and inform.
— Professor of Marine Geology, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, University of Miami

Gregor Hodgson

Dr. Richard C. Murphy has combined over 30 years of underwater observation, much of it diving with Jacques and Jean-Michel Cousteau, with unique photographs to create his brilliant new book. Coral Reefs: Cities Under the Sea. .... The book clearly explains the economic, ecological, and spiritual value of coral reefs and why every human being should be concerned that reefs are facing an unprecedented crisis due to human impacts of over-fishing, pollution, and sedimentation.... Coral Reefs is the best illustrated and most informative book aimed at the general reader that I have read on the subject.
— Director, Reef Check Institute of the Environment, UCLA
