"You don't have to be Jacques Cousteau to find yourself eye to eye with a sea horse. Hundreds of photographs in "Encyclopedia of Fishes" (Academic Press) depict the habits and habitats of more kinds of fish than anyone is likely to see in a lifetime, from endearingly gaudy parrot fish to the nightmarish dragonfish (which sports a bear-trap jaw mounted on a whiplash body)." -New Yorker Magazine (5th July 1999)About the Author:
