    5-0 out of 5 stars This book makes the hobby 'real' for my kids
    I purchased this book after my children (4, 5) developed an interest in collecting sea glass after finding their first pieces on the beach. This summer we collected pounds of the stuff on vacation, and the children couldn't wait to get home to the book to see if they had found any rare colors (we found gray, pink and black!).
    5-0 out of 5 stars Love it
    I love this book. the pictures are wonderful...i am going to look for more seaglass...thank you

    5-0 out of 5 stars Pure Sea Glass
    This a wonderful book - whether you are a sea glass collector or not!The photography is beautiful and there is a wealth of information for both the serious and novice collector.I immediately looked through my collection for "finds" and can't wait to get back to the beach to find more. ...

    Purchase and delivery were right on key.Very pleased with whole process.Item arrived in excellent condition.My daughter received a B+ on her first Oceanography College Exam (just points away from an A).That makes all the difference in the world....................Thanks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of Tom Garrison's Students
    I took Tom Garrison's class at Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, CA.Wonderful class!He taught along with the book and every session was both insightful and interesting.Dr. Garrison is without a match in instructional etiquette and eloquence.Indeed, this book showcases his best work on the subject.Read the book...Be educated by the diagrams and charts...Be taken back at the amazing realms of life under the ocean...And most of all, be in awe of a marvelous earth (or "Oceanus") that is in great need of our consideration right now.Otherwise we end up dead like the aliens...Oops..I hope I did't give a way the ending!If you have few bucks, come and take the class at OCC.You will be so glad you did.Just don't come in late through one of the side doors, or leave your cell phone on.He can't STAND those things!It drives him CRAZY!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best textbook I've ever read.

    I am not a marine biologist, but many of the authors of the more advanced books on reef aquariums seem to assume that of their readers.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good for quick reference
    If you already know a bit about corals, this is a nice book to have around for quick reference.I especially like that it lists similar corals and gives some basic information on how to tell them apart.It can be deceptive, though.The information it gives on the specific corals is very general, and should not be considered a good source for research on a coral you're planning to actually buy.Don't get me wrong, though.I'm happy I have this book, but I'd suggest supplementing it with a text such as Eric Bourneman's "Aquarium Corals: Selection, Husbandry, and Natural History".This text will actually give you much more specific information on requirements to care for the corals, as well as some better techniques to identify certain corals, since many look very similar, and there's no way any book could show every possible shape and color for many species.

    3-0 out of 5 stars good picture book
    Book has lots of good pictures to help you identify corals.IN this manner it can be used as a min-coral atlas.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Good First Reference Text, pity about poor quality binding and packaging
    A wonderful first reference text from Julian Sprung. The necessary information is well presented and communicated in a clear manner. A word of advice, don't get the hardcover version as it looses pages through poor binding and Amazon's inability to package adequately results in the corners being damaged in transit. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars good wetland text
    Overall, this is a very good text on wetlands (for students and professionals both).However, I personally feel that a entire chapter could be devoted to wetland soils and wish that this book gave a better presentation of wetland soils.Furthermore, a great deal of research has been performed in Boreal wetlands and Boreal Prairie wetlands of Canada yet the Canadian literature is somewhat lacking in this text.Its still the best option out there for professors.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Applauded by this Environmental Engineer PE!
    There is no better book for learning about wetlands that I have found.Many students find hydrology difficult, but this book lays this critical process out clearly, with excellent illustrations and diagrams.
    5-0 out of 5 stars The Wetlands Textbook
    I first picked this book up to consider a career as a wetland scientist (among other things) and instantly dove into the heaps of information provided. It is well written and easy to read with nicely labelled sections. I found that it had all sorts of information on the subject. It is highly useful.Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Beston is without a doubt the best!
    I wouldn't dream of heading for the Cape without this book--Henry Beston captures the Cape more beautifully than any other author.THE OUTERMOST HOUSE is one of those enchanting books which improves with each rereading.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Customers interested in this title may also be interested in ...
    Since Amazon hasn't provide a link between Outermost House, by Beston, and The Winter Beach, by Charlton Ogburn (ISBN 068809418X), I would like to suggest here that, if you like Outermost House, you will almost certainly enjoy The Winter Beach, as well.From the jacket description: "A naturalist and man of rare wisdom shares with you his journeys along the Atlantic shore."

    3-0 out of 5 stars Bird-watching the Soul
    There's an H.G. Wells story (in Bloom's anthology for children) called "The Remarkable Case of Davidson's Eyes"; the title character is struck by lightning and undergoes a visual hallucination in which he believes he sees a desolate island, or as he puts it, "Dark sea and sunrise!And yet I'm sitting on a sofa in old Boyce's room!...God help me!"I didn't think much of the story at the time I read it, but now, on reading "The Outermost House," I find it a remarkably excellent and relevant critique of American nature writing.Surrounded by friends and family, Davidson's gaze is turned inward-or rather projected far outward-to a pristine setting that becomes a horror to the reader.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great things come in small packages
    Williams has put together a visceral, haunting, beautiful stream ofconsciousness aria here. This little tiny book has become one of my veryfavorite works over the past few years I have owned a copy of it. It is oneof those books that tends to find itself hidden on my bookshelf, and when Irediscover it I am in for a real treat. This is the story of a woman who isso aware of her soul that it is almost ethereal. Walking the slot canyonsof Utah and Arizona has always brought out powerful emotions within me, butafter reading this book a few times I literally lose myself in the earthwhen hiking there now. Yes, this is a tale of love and love-making, but onsuch a spiritual level that it is easy to fall asleep and drift into adreamy, watery place of serenity after reading it. What more can a bookoffer than that???? Save yourself the money usually spent on a"relaxing vacation" to a crowded get-away and set a fire in thefireplace, put on some Loreena McKennit and lose yourself in this treasureof a book. Mary Frank's sketches and watercolors set the stage and TerryTempest Williams provides the magic carpet.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, Erotic Travelogue of the Mind
    This book is short: 62 pages is an exaggeration, since many of those pages are filled with sketches and since the book itself is only about the size of a CD case. But what it lacks in length it more than makes up for inbeauty. Terry Tempest Williams is an incredible, widely respected writer,and this book was released to much critical acclaim. Her book details awoman hiking in the canyons of southern Utah, and the thoughts that flashthrough her mind as she walks, and the freedom she feels in nature: thekinds of thoughts we all have when we go hiking, but aren't able to putdown on paper as well as she.Read more

What else can you expect from a product linked to the BBC, David Attenborough, and Discovery Channel.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Serviceable and Entertaining
    My goal in purchasing this book, which pulls together information about birds, shells, dune plants, and fish was to be able to pack one slim volume instead of the bag of field guides I usually took to the Outer Banks. After two trips to North Carolina in the last year, I have found that I still need to carry a couple of other references because this is not comprehensive in any one of its categories--and how could it be at 148 pages? However, Meyer's guide does manage to cover many of the specimens commonly found along the Carolina coast.Furthermore, it is written in a graceful voice that keeps you reading long after you've put a name to the beastie you found on the beach. It is not childish or simple at all, but it can be used by the entire family. It stirs wonder.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting guide...
    Being a transplant from Michigan, I had little knowledge of coastal animals and plants. I purchased this book to satisfy my curiosity. I'm not knowledgeable enough as the other reviewer who found the inaccuracies in the book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book. The information is presented in a very interesting way and all the photographs are in color. I can't wait to spend more time on the coast and see some of the creatures myself.I'll definitely have this guide on hand. I also enjoyed the respect the author has for nature.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Some SERIOUS problems in the plates, otherwise ok
    Overall an ok book for a beginner. If you come into this as a naturalist you will likely be disapointed. There are some otherserious problems that I was able to spot straight out.Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Spellbinding story - uneven writing and organization
    This is a spellbinding book on a scuba diving drama that raises mixed emotions, as it combines a variety of topics and experiences and confronts the reader with a number of challenges. As the title implies, it is nominally about the last dive of Chris and Chrissie Rouse, a dare-devil father-and-son scuba dive team that perished in 1992 while trying to unlock the secrets of an undocumented German U-Boat laying at 230 feet of water about 60 miles off the New York/New Jersey coast.
    4-0 out of 5 stars Intriguing study of what drives risk takers
    Bringing their only child into the world, and making a lifetime commitment to each other, changed everything for Chris and Sue Rouse when they faced her unplanned pregnancy. Chris was 18 years old, and still in high school, when Chris Jr. - known throughout his life as "Chrissy" - arrived. Sue gave up her dreams of college, a career, and world travel so the young couple could build a business and a family instead. Eventually they succeeded so well financially that Chris could afford such hobbies as owning his own small airplane. Then he discovered scuba diving, a sport to which he promptly introduced both Sue and Chrissy; and the Rouse family's lives changed again. Never inclined toward doing anything by halves, they soon moved from recreational diving - a relatively safe pursuit - to the adrenaline rush of cave diving.
    5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read For Any Wreck Diver
