This is another great book. It is broken up into different categories. For example the first section focusses on open ocean predators including, among others, Barracuda, Dolphins, and Orcas. There is little text in each section so the pictures are left to tell the story instead. This routine is carried out across four sections with the quality of photographs being very high. There are many double page spreads of different ocean creatures throughout making this an exemplary book and ideal for those days when all one wants to do is just look at some pictures without having to be bothered with reading lots of text. A very enjoyable read.
