The best part about this book are all the illustrations of fish you've never seen before. The text is often lame. If you're not into fossil fish and don't know why these fish are cool you may not like it that much.

This book is small in height, but one of the largest information books on the specific subject of "fossil" fishes I have ever seen. You just have to hunt around in the index for the specific fish you are looking for...

The book is well produced and almost all of pictures in color.
However the small format, 5 x 7.5, makes it very difficult, if not impossible, to see details of the animal illustrated. In addition, there a number of fairly common fish from the U.S. not mentioned in the book.

This is an incredible book about fish fossils from all around the world. The pictures are in full color and absolutely beautiful. What this books offers in photos, it lacks in information. The descriptions of the fishes often seem too short. I would have really like to have had a size range listed with each fish description. All that is mentioned on fish size is the actual size of each photographed specimen. This is nice, but it would have been nice to have more information. Also, it would have been nice if the book had been printed on bigger pages. The book is an incredible picture book of fossil fish and an interesting study in different types of fish, but not much beyond that. All in all, I am glad to have it.
