Another book review.... The Ultimate Guide to Hawaiian Reef Fishes Sea Turtles, Dolphins, Whales, and Seals by John P. Hoover.
OK, I feel sort of weird for doing a quick review of this book immediately following the quick review of his second edition of Hawai'i's Fishes, but appears "there's a new sheriff in town" when it comes to books covering Hawaiian reef fish. I'd heard about this book and found a copy of it last night, turns out Amazon has it in stock so it's readily available.
This book is a step up from the other series, more pictures, more species, more pictures of color variations... cool. I'm on about copy number 4 of the other series.. I manage to get them wet on the boat over time, and I suspect I'll be getting more of these as I wear them out.
Anyway, I thought I'd give a heads up as to it's availability. If you like these, check on the sidebar of the blog where I'll have permanent links to them as well as "Hawai'i's Sea Creatures" which is Mr. Hoover's excellent invertebrate book.
