Windforge
This book on reef animals is extensively and beautifully illustrated with photos of the reef corals and animals, in all their diversity.
The diver is overwhelmed by the variety and incredible color of reef life, then wonders what he is seeing. This book provides a great overwivw of this incredibly rich variety of life. The authors are excellently qualified for their difficult task as guides and te4achers of marine bilology, given their full time occupations as full-time marine biologists at the California Academiy of Sciences.
This book fits nicely in public libraries, and in the book shelves of divers, marine resorts, dive boats and of course, scuba divers.

This book covers many the species of soft and hard corals found in the Indo-Pacific region as well as many of the invertebrates. However no book of this nature can be complete and there will be some complaints that is does not cover everything, but with a subject so large it would be an impossible task to fit into one book. A great reference book to keep at home and name some of the marine animals you have take photos of on that dive vacation. It is a bit too large to travel with.

Has some really nice pictures and great information on many reef invertebrates. Anyone looking on info on fish will be disappointed though, no fish in here. But there are lots of other books available on fish anyway. This is a great guide for tropical invertebrates in the Indo-Pacific, I hope they will publish another edition as they continue to describe species new to science from the region!

I relied on the previous reviews and brought this book with me on a recent trip to French Polynesia. I should have been more careful. One reviewer, for example, noted the inclusion of ten (though I see eight) "undescribed little octopi." How does he know that they're little? The book doesn't give size information. The first of the eight is described as large, then there is no size information for the next two, and then the fourth is "another small species." How small? How small is a small octopus, anyway? It's not something I know, but it is something I expect a guide to tell me. Also, the one octopus I spent most time watching changed color repeatedly, and I would have liked to have seen something about coloration possibilities.

I'm rating this book harshly became I see what more it could have been. It's also a heavy book, and weight is crucial on inter-island flights. Next time, I'm bringing Allen and Steene's Indo-Pacific Coral Reef Field Guide. It has fewer entries and devotes the plurality of its pages to fish, which are better covered elsewhere, but it's lighter weight and gives size information.

After a trip to Fiji in 2011, I wish to revise this review to rate the item more highly. I remain disappointed in the lack of size information, and I still wouldn't carry it with me. But I find that as I try to identify the reef animals of which I took pictures, I'm using the book. I still want the book to be better, but I'm giving it three stars rather than two. Three seems to better reflect my ambivalence.

Excellent photographs and species descriptions. This is a 1996 book and some place names have changed (for example, Belau is now Palau). It is a bit scholarly at times but is readable. My only criticism is the lack of common names for most of species presented.

This book is exactly what I had hoped it would be. It has beautiful photos and adequate descriptions of the reef life. I used it to identify photos that my husband took on a recent dive trip. I would recommend it very highly.
